JV - Pretty cool. Some questions:

What was the distance? (My guess: 30 miles.)
Did any of these guys wear something on their feet?
Did a team lose points for a fall or was the object simply to be the first boat to the other end?
Was a footer switch mandatory with each fall?
How did you rig two handles from the same line?
Why not tow from the ski pylon?
Can I pull barefooters from the factory tower on my '07 Outback?

Thanks. - Deerfield

Deerfeild,
Bamaspiveys is the real expert here, he got me hooked on the site. I will try to answer what i know and what little i may have learned from the vids.

30 to 40 miles
barefeet only
first boat to the end( like a cannonball run)
to save race time and get a fresh footer, the change is needed( 4 skiers)
a dual ended barefoot rope, with some type of custom pulley system?
don't know, probably for the pulley system and ease of the deep start.
i would only pull from the pylon, IMO

:confused:
