Q: How much horsepower would I need if I wanted to pull tubes behind my 24-foot pontoon?

A: Although you could pull tubes with just about any size outboard, to be safe you would need at least a 90hp engine to satisfy the tubers in your family. The ideal engine would be a 115hp or 150hp engine if your family is big into water sports.
