Welcome to the seadoo forum seadoo111. Yes it should be stable with one or two, depending on how you balance is. As far as pulling a wake boarder it could as it has the power. If the wake boarder is aggressive it could roll you and the spotter over also. You'll have to experiment and see what happens.

ok well the wake boarders would not be doing and jumping just sorta going off tto the side to hit little rails and just sorta do some riding. cuz we have a little park

I think it might be fun to experiment to find what works.

It's all about balance...when I used to race stand-up Kawasaki's 440's, 550 and 650's I could do head stands on them while standing still, even with it shut off...than start it up and drive away still doing a head stand...it's all about balance.!( was 35 at the time.):)

This is probably a stupid question but once again im new to seadoo's so i know nothing. im just wondering, will my 92 XP have that water spout out the back when ur moving that shoots water like 10 feet into the air, its just a little stream of water. if some one could let me know that would be wonderful.

Typically the small stream of water, also know as a "Tell Tail" indicates that the cooling system is working. It doesn't squirt 10 feet behind. It squirts maybe about 2 feet...Uh, I think that is another brand of pwc that does that.

In the hull I believe there is a drain plug by the jet pump nozzle.

It is a Yamaha thing. I used to have to pull mine off so that it wasn't shooting people in the face when I was pulling a tube.
