This is probably the dumbest question ever asked
But I need to know the correct way to tie on the ski
Rope onto the back cleat of our 1989 ProStar 190.
It is a round circle with a prong in the middle that sticks
Straight up. Just got the boat and tied it two different ways
And both ways came off as I was pulling my son
Wake boarding. Any help is much appreciated!!

I have never found a super secure way to tie off to that round circle either. I have done it in the past when I had a full boatload of people and someone wanted to go for a pleasure ski. I seem to recall hooking the rope at 15' off and then shoving some of the 15' rope into the circle part to "pin down" the rope that is tied off so it wouldn't come loose. I'm assuming there is a reason you can't use the pylon? I use my fly high pole for boarding, or when I have people in the back seat.
Good luck,
Kevin

Yes people in the back. I use the pylon when skiing.

take the loop of your rope slip under ski hook on the inside pointing up, then slip loop over thing sticking up, your rope should pull from under tow hook, and rope will not come off

Drop the loop over and behind the top of the ring through the bottom, then onto the finger. You can double up the loop to make it tighter, like in this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=EWHl-sStby4#t=396s) at about 6:30.

I'm pretty sure my rear tow point has the 'hook' facing the other way, so there is no way to loop it, you just have to hook it over and it does tend to come off unless there is tension.

If your hook is the same as mine which I would think it is (90 ps190) this is how we did it before we got a skylon

Or double loop
98190

Or there's this option, I think it more evenly distributes the load on the hook.
