towing with a flex

I am thinking about getting a flex and was wondering if it would pull my 18 ft fishing and ski like the way it looks and with towing package looked with class 3 reciver it should handle it . so would love to know if any one has one and towed with it what you think

How much does your boat weight and what does the manual say about towing? I am sure it's rated for at least 3500 lbs.
