If you use the waterski's from the 60's it is possible. The ski's back then were longer and wider than today's ski's. I could ski using my 16 foot center console Starcraft with a 35 Evinrude back in1979 with no problem using my Dad's old ski's.

When I was young I ski'd behind an old 15' Glasspar with that same engine on a pair of wooden skis. It would yank my 180lb but right up no sweat. we only ever had a driver and spotter in that little boat though. I don't remember the pitch prop my brother had on the motor. I know it wasn't fast but it had one heck of a hole shot.
