Leaving the shootout is what it's all about time to play.

As I recall we found ours at one of the warehouse stores. They are the kind that you use for additional weight in your vehicle in the winter.

To the 27' inquiry:
I live right where the temporary no wake zone ends (31 mm) aka "the washing machine". Last year I attended the Shootout by water each day in a 15' Checkmate (and there are even smaller boats there). If you are worried about riding in big water, launch at Pirates Point ($10 honor system) which is just past the finish line near Capt. Ron's and you'll have no wake idle speeds all weekend.

I had a blast years ago in my 24 Outlaw !!! Set the tabs halfway down and kept a tight hand on the the throttle and had a blast jumping from wave to wave. The wife even liked it !!!!

I have been on many lakes and oceans and NEVER seen waves like the ones right when the shootout ends !!!

Pull 25 to 50 feet past where you want to be the other way, and drop the other one. Pull forward to where you want to be and you will be good. At the end of the day, just drag the tubes along the bottom. They will tear open and drop the sand, so all you have it the empty bags coming up. This held our 42 Gibson in place on a windy day a few years back. The sand tubes are cheaper than losing a good anchor and rope.

Ditto on the "get there early and 3/4's of the way down the track". The biggest spectator/party day is Saturday, but Sunday is also good.
I've used concrete blocks and cheap line from Lowes for the last few years, works great and cheap.

The PP loves the run home after the Shootout
