Will it harm a boats outboard engines to got to full throttle from standstill?
Most boat trials seem to be at around 10 knots before going to wide open throttle. Is it safe to fully open up the throttle from standstill?

Does it harm a car's engine when you floor it?

Not if the engine is heated up and the water pump running.

It will harm any engine to go full throttle from cold. You must give time for oil to be distributed around the engine and for the moving parts to reach working temperature
