Montauk ski pylon

I have a new Montauk on order. BW does not
offer a ski pylon as a factory option. I know
I don't need the pylon to pull a skier but I
had one on my Dauntless and would like one.
Can a pylon be used on a Montauk without
damage to the boat? If so, is there an after-market pylon I can buy?
Thanks for the help

I use the same bridle setup that Chuck mentioned. The ski pylon is superior because it is higher above the water line. The skiier is pulled "up" out of the water. Also, it's easier to get air on a kneeboard or wakeboard when the tow rope is attached higher up on the boat - notice the popularity of wakeboard towers on that genre of boats.
The bridle does work, though. Even on my 15'.

They make some very good ski pylons and they will work well in most boats.
