The form you are referring to is a waiver or release of liability. Although these forms are not watertight, they are difficult to overcome. The first issue is who is your claim against. Did the rental business provide defective equipment, the boat, the tow rope or the tube? Was the driver going too fast or driving recklessly? The waiver would only protect the rental business, not the driver of the boat. If the equipment was not defective and the boat was being driven properly, there may not be any negligence involved and you would not have a claim against anyone. If you feel there was negligence involved which caused your injury, please contact an attorney to discuss your potential claim.
