There was a thread on here somewhere somebody made a PVC support to fit over and around the engine cover on a PS190 and they carried a PWC on it.

Nice B1 Ryan! Still one of my favorite toys that I miss.
Thanks man, too bad I had to sell it. I usually kept it on my houseboat in Powell, but due to the new laws, you can't use any carburated 2-strokes on the lake anymore. I also have a '91 JS550SX stand-up that I can't ride on Powell any more also...

This is basically the set up I was thinking but I agree the platform for towing is probably a poor idea. I thought this would be cool because because we could run out to the coves or what not and at the end of the day usually nobody wants to ride it back. It will fit in the SUV but a) I hate moving things twice B)Sometimes its just me and the woman. Thanks for all the input.

if no one wants to ride it back just tie a rope to it - or does this not work with standups?

Stand up docking cradle??

I built a platform mount for my Yamaha standup a while back to get in and out of the no wake zones and for general convenience...it was ok at idle but really threw the boat off COG and prohibited planing out. Also a real hassle to load....

Seems like I remember a docking cradle/station from the 80s or early 90s for these that enabled towing and made standups more flexible. Anyone have any leads or thoughts??

Thanks in advance!

I have carried 550's on the platform of my X9 no problems, planed out OK.

Yes, there was a big floating surround for 440/550's. Never seen one in person.

And for the person that asked, no stand ups do not tow above idle.

If you are talking about what I think you are I have the 440/550 floatable attachment. It essentially makes the stand up into a sit down, so it wont flip over.

Also regarding towing a stand up at idle speed. I was thinking about making a clip in system or something to hold my stand up straight (not allow it to travel left and right) and use this to tow at no wake speeds, what do you think?

I've only seen the pontoon on X2s.... Is this what you're talking about?

Sorry for the huge image, found it in a search.
