I built this Vac-U-Tug for the local sailing club. It has removable arms and they use it to set marks as well by towing a boogie board.
It seems to be handling IOM's okay

I think you know what I use for a my rescue boat, but since they are not made any longer, I'd consider a the Aquacraft Atlantic Tug http://aquacraftmodels.com/boats/aqu...-ii/index.html

These can be upgraded in many ways but should do the job right out of the box. I had one but opted to use my Coast Guard Motor Life Boat instead. Both are good choices.
