Hi All,

Happy to have a pair of Sparks now-- Orange 2up and Berry 3up (refuse to call it pink, or even bubble gum...heh).

I have a 2 up cover still in the box, and another for the 3up on the way soon.

Questions---are the Seadoo covers good enough and tight enough to tow at highway speeds (65-70 mph)?

Do they need a strap or ready to go as is? Interested in others' experiences...

Thanks---

Mark

I have towed many times on the highway. No problem at all. The only issue I have had is the points on the front of the handle bar started poking through. I added some Gorilla Tape to the inside and hope that keeps it from poking all the way through. I am trailering tomorrow so I'll see if that does the trick.

I've towed a few times on the highway with no problems. One thing to be sure is to strap the spark down in the rear. The cover does have a zipper opening in the back under the seat to secure the straps to.

300+ mi at around 65-70mph and no issues at all actually seamed to fit better after the trip. Those vents suck the air out from under the cover and it tightens down.

thanks!

Appreciate the feedback, all. Sounds like they covers are pretty decent. I'll keep an eye on the handle bar area, and there's a pair of straps on the rear of each Spark already.

Again, thanks!

We bought ours in Key Largo and brought them back to Jacksonville. So about 6 hours of interstate driving and no problems at all.

Best covers I've ever used. The vents with the small air dams in front of them form a vacuum on the inside of the cover and keep it from billowing. Just pulled mine 1,000 miles on the hiway. Very good covers!

I agree best covers I have ever used! Just got back from vacation 6hrs both ways 70-85mph the entire trip. Once you start moving the vents suck the air right out and they tighten up like glove.

You all were right--covers are great. Just did 1,000 mile round trip vacation with the two Sparks. Covers were perfect, no issues at all.

HOWEVER---The day before we headed home, the Spark 3up lost propulsion---probably either wear ring or drive/spline issue others have seen. So that ended our vacation a bit early...bleh. About 20 hours on it before this happened. So sad. And I'm talking this happened in a clear, deep freshwater lake--no a dirty reservoir full of gunk. Middle of lake--not along the shore. Just made a loud noise, slowed down' shut off unit, and it makes ugly sound and won't move even under idle. :( I'm an old fart with 40 years boating experience, so it's not a newbie dumb move.

Then came home to find the recall notices for both the 3up and the 2up---double bleh!

Both skis to dealer today so hoping repairs don't take a long time. Summer is short :(

I did a 400mile trip with 2 in tow. They started to flap a little after 20 miles. I sinced up the tension cords about 6 inches and then they were tight as can be with no flapping. Pretty good covers IMO.
