Default 3.0L pull a adult skier?

Hello, new to this site and new owner of a 07 Maxum 1800 MX with the Mercruiser 3.0 the previous owner took me out and water tested before i purchased the boat but i have not been able to get out on lake yet. Its been raining every day after i bought it. Anyway wondering if this size motor will pull me on a slolum ski without problems. It will mainly be used to pull my kids around on a tube but would like to ski if possible. Im sure I'll find out soon enough! 😀 thanks for any help.

Should not be a problem. You might have to change to a lower pitch prop. Just be careful not to over rev engine. If it's an alpha drive you will be able to change prop while boat is in water. Good luck and have fun.
