Sorry, that's how they talk about it in the instructions. How tight do you make the cable when you tighten the ratchet? I know there isn't a good way to qauntify this, but I don't want to overtighten and damage the boat, or leave too loose and damage the pylon/rider/passengers. How do you know when it's tight enough?

I watch the top of the pole and as I ratchet it down as soon as it starts to pull towards the bow of the boat I stop.

I pull mine forward an inch or two and use it primarily for 'footing.
