+1 Makes a difference how big the inflatable is too (and how much weight will be on it). I've seen a number of ski bars that were strong enough, but what they were mounted to was not. That situation produces considerable bending and deformation to motor canoes. The better ski bars use diagonal braces to structure forward of the main mounting point. Yes, those without the braces are easier to mount, but the bending forces at the base can be an eye-opener.You should do a search on this topic in this forum. It is discussed a few times every year. Split opinions on which direction people prefer. If you do so, you’ll see lots of detailed opinions on each type of tow support. I’ve posted in a fair number of them on my thoughts on the Turbo swing as it is what we have and our preference for various reasons. That said, a good number of people have reasons they prefer a more traditional tow bar.
