James and his wife (sorry I don't remember your name!) are nice, professional and trustworthy. Very happy with them but not happy with the boatsetter.com experience in general. The company and site make it very difficult to try the service. They disallow any contact between renters and owners making committing to a rental very risky (at least for me). I find their reasoning disingenuous...they say it's for our security. BS, its because they're afraid some people will make arrangements outside of boatsetter. But why would they? Boatsetter's value is the insurance AND holding payment until the transaction is completed. Let us communicate so we can build trusting relationships between buyers/sellers...I can't imagine how many sales are lost because of their restrictive policies! I was soooooo close to blowing it off! This was a very inexpensive rental...no way would I have done it for $600...why not just rent from a business at a marina for that kind of money?
Thank you to James and family for sharing their boat. We had an OK time, but have some very specific feedback that we hope you will find helpful. Upon leaving the marina, we struggled to get the boat to start. It stalled numerous times and we had to anchor and keep trying. Seems like the engine could use some maintenance. The other frustrating item was that we were not warned of the NUMEROUS sand bars in relation to that marina and between Catherine Island. It would have saved us a LOT of stress and drama had the owners told us the best route to use given the tide and these sand bars. The loran only helps you avoid a bar but cannot help you find the route to go around them. Unfortunately there was bad weather coming and we were very stressed trying to return.
Four of us took the boat to explore St Catherine's beach, some fishing spots, and several creeks and inlets around the area. The boat was well-equipped with all we needed and ran well. James and Amanda are attentive and helpful. If you need a boat to explore the area, I can recommend renting this one.
Had a great time fishing and walking around the North Beach at St. Catherines Island. James and Amanda are a pleasure to deal with and made the process easy. We caught a few large sting rays and family had a great time. Would definitely recommend.
We had a fabulous time on the boat, drove out beyond St Catherines Island, dropped the anchor and caught Sharks, Rays and Whiting. James and Amanda made the whole experience easy and were both very knowledgable. Although the boat is old, it is reliable and very well equipped for day’s fishing. We had our own gear but James will supply everything you need and you can buy live shrimp, frozen shrimp and squid from the marina shop. We hope to rent again before our vacation is over, Highly recommended!!
Excellent experience! Whole family had a great time. Towing insurance was a life saver...low tide came on too quick and we got stuck on a sand bar. Even with this, everything went smoothly with getting a tow and getting back in the water. James and his wife were excellent.
My experience renting from James and his wife could not have been better. They reached out to us right away and took care of everything. The boat was great and everything was ready to go as soon as we arrived. He even went as far as providing us fishing gear. We caught sea trout, redfish, sharks, rays, and whiting all day long out near St. Catherine’s Island which was just a short drive away. Thanks again James, we will be back!
