My wife doesn't get on the boat without a blanket. As soon as the sun goes down, it gets chilly.Sorry Debbie, we have ordinary blankets that we keep on the boat so we just call them boat blankets. The docking pole has a hook and push-off to help keep you from hitting things or pull you toward a dock. Really nice to have on a windy day.
We have 1 year in on the previous model, “The Atom”. It held up great, I’m watching the stitching, but so far so good. On the aggressive side, my cocky 11 year old, 24 & 26 year old nephews have had some hellacious rides. The only complaint is their legs wear on the spheres when riding on them, but it seems they addressed that on the molecule with additional or different material. Regardless, it’s by far the best tube we’ve owned in 40+ years. As you know, it’s the centrifugal speed they reach that’s deadly, so it doesn’t take much to get them screaming around a corner. Without additional contracting waves, it’s never flipped. Just sheer safe terror! We are blessed with enough power to pull anything we want, so I’m not sure how this would do with less. The main problem we have is wake, or lack-there-of, since we create very little, we need to stalk the wakeboard and I/O’s to get them airborne. But regardless, I completely endorse this ride. If you need more proof, show up at our pier....make sure your suits are tied up!!I had not seen or heard of the molecule before. Looks great. What speeds can it handle? For teens/adults that wanting a bit of a thrilling ride, can you go fast enough with it to do so based on its materials and construction?
