Jet ski yeah, small boat depends on how small. Personally after having replaced my bumper from backing into a tree at .2 miles per hour and twisting it all to hell, I don't want to pull anything with it. However, I have a frame hitch anyway.....

I Pulled a F-150 with mine a couple miles, wasn't goin too fast tho, if your gonna be towing regularly a reciever hitch is definately worth your while
