Default I need help towing somthing huge!!!!!

I have atlantic bayrider and we use it alot for towing the kids on floats and stuff. My buddy owns a marina and is re-constructing it. Do you think I can tow the pilings out of the groud with my boat? Im looking to dissemble the whole walkways and pilings all with by boat. Anyone done this before??

Most of us can read the words, it's trying to make sense of them that is the issue I think. Never heard of trying to 'tow' pilings out. If you literally mean tieing a line to a piling and trying to pull it out by putting it into gear and giving it the gas, I think you'll have problems-including local enviros not liking the idea. Just a guess.
Never mind pictures -think video.

Need to Jet them loose first . Then.... wiggling back-and-forth ....you could use the boat for that ...oh don't forget a crane to lift them up. I understand your dilemma. There are no more marine contractors left on this planet? It's your boat man do what you want. Get a running start and jerk them out!!

Can I watch and tape? I promise to call 911 for the medics and TowBoatUS for salvage! Must be a Jersey thing as any redneck would know better.
