I couldn't agree more.
Ironic that a thread started about this topic. I'd never seen one before noticing the one that was mounted on the Evinrude 35 I bought last month. I thought it was a cool idea and am bummed that it doesn't fit my 48 SPL.

No way would I want a skier off to the side pulling on a motor attached to the transom by two hand tightened screws.
That plus the facts that the product is no longer found and outboard motors don't come with a 'towing' eye cast in the mid section.
Neat item though!
I thought the same thing, our family had a Vagabond when I was growing up and as my brother and I got to be teenagers and were skiing on one ski we could pull it around pretty easily with the rope attached to the transom. My Dad did not put up with much of that, you would get whipped around and then he would cut back and hand you a whole bunch of slack rope to deal with
