I voted Love them but i really just like them. When there is over ten to fifteen boats it gets hairy. They are dangerous. AA fast boat could get you in trouble.

They are just to dangerous. It would be ok with 3 or 4 boats but after that I think it's not a good idea.

They would not be so bad but there always has to be one idiot who wants to go left but for some reason is on the far right side. It's happens every time.

I recall shotgun starts from my early tournament days. I always waited to everyone left, then I took off. We had plenty of idiots even back then.

this.

I don't have to worry. When I fish tourneys in my boat, it's the slowest thing on water. When I fish tourneys in the loaner, it's a numbered take off. Never have had the chance to drag race in it.

depends on the size of tournament and take off area, 10-15 boats can be fun more than that and its to dangerous imo..

We had some wild ones coming out of the state park cove on lake Corpus Christi in the early to mid 80's. They were fun when I was young and crazy in my 900 pound Kevlar hull Hydrosport with a punched out 150 evinrude. That was back in the day of the higher the rooster tail the faster we thought were going or at least I did.

To many idiots for shotgun starts in this day in time. Its dang near bumper boats sometimes in the BFL
