Anyone else think this is rediculose? It's going to get someone killed very soon

I understand holding people at the gate till they deem its safe but why hold everyone inside the buoys?
If you feel it's safe to go then let them launch and go

By holding everyone in the cove till a whistle blows your basically creating a 100 boat shot gun start

Just a matter of time before someone gets run over

If you feel its dangerous just hang back. Ill never forget the 150 boat shotgun start texas team trail mistakenly provoked on Ray Roberts a few years back. Most dangerous situation I had ever been in fishing/boat related. It was still my fault because I decided to be a part of it.

This is the only way to find out how fast your boat really is. I found out that the water is smoother if you are first. Hence no Ranger for me.

They can be a little unnerving right at the beginning, But then after you run most of down and get ahead it's fun. I do love them myself

Personally I don't see the problem with this. Squaw Creek is known state wide has having the most courteous, intelligent and experienced boaters anywhere.

Shouldn’t be a problem in a few years when everybody has autonomous tow vehicles that sling unmanned autonomous lane departure and following distance warning equipped boats off the ramp. Until then .... beware.
