Is the length of the rope measured from the pylon or the back of the boat?

Isn't the length of a rope the length regardless of where it is hooked up??

That's what I thought, but I started to question myself after (just for fun, lol) we took 41 off and I thought we were about to get CO poisoning we were so close to the transom.

Official rope lengths are obtained by tensioning the line to ~43 pounds and measuring with a tape measure.

So that is your rope length for a slalom rope. for a wakeline, who checks those things anyway?

i thought it depends on if you are using feet or meters, rotation of the earth, specific gravity of water & total displacement of the boat manufacturer?

You almost forgot:

- If the boat has a powerslot/gear reduction transmission subtract 5% of rope length
- Density altitude: for every 2k feet, add 1 foot
- If your a dentist with the "special course" add 10' foot to rope.
