Any thoughts on towing a ti behind a boat, at say 30knts? Have some nice islands 10 miles offshore, usually take 6 people on the motoboat, ti is a little big to lash to the side of the 23 ft walk around cutty we have. Matt will this void the warranty? We tore a big hole in our sunfish. Has anyone tried this? Thanks, Leo

Big NO!

I'd say towing is a bad idea at any speed above just a few knots. The bow eye is not designed for it, nor is the hull, crossbars, mast, amas.
