I do have a tower, but was pulling off the transom since the boat was pretty full... had 8 in the boat, 3 nieces, 2 daughters, sister-in-law, wife and me...
Didn't really consider pulling from the tower. When we head out Thursday evening, it will just be the wife and kids, so I can put one of the girls in the bow and the wife in the spotter's seat, or both in the spotter seat and pull from the pylon or the tower.
I'm sure that the water will be much smoother on Thursday than it was on Saturday, so that should help a bit too.
The girls had no problem controlling the skis in the water, so I feel pretty good about their ability to get up if I can give them a good pull. They were pretty relaxed and not fighting the skis at all.
