Here is the perfect boat for a fun day on Lake Lanier! She is just the right size; small enough to be easy to handle, but large enough to to ride comfortably on the south end of the lake. And the extended swim platform and built in coolers make hanging out in that quiet cove an absolute pleasure!
This jewel is perfect for a family to enjoy on Lake Lanier, and is rated for up to 12 people (In the interest of honesty, about 8 ADULTS is a realistic maximum... a couple more if some are children). It is on the water convenient to both the north and south ends of the lake and is ready for you!
The boat is equipped with everything that you need, including a cooler, all the necessary life-jackets (renters should bring appropriate sized flotation devices for children), horn, fire extinguisher, etc.
It has an extended swim platform and walk-through transom that makes it perfect for that quiet cove or for skiing and tubing.
The rental fee does not include gas - there is a gas dock at the marina and renters are required to fill the tank upon return.
If you have any questions, please send me a message and I will do my best to respond quickly. Active, Reserve, or Retired Military, as well as Active or Retired Public Safety ask for your discount!!!
Whether you use my boat, someone else's boat, or just drive up and go swimming I want everyone to have a fantastic and safe day on Lake Lanier!
I want to start by say ing that I met Rick at the boat on the first day as he went over all the safety features. I text him immediately regarding the stiff steering which he never responded. We ended up having the boat towed cause the boat wasn't in good operating condition. Rick promised to reimburse which he Did Not. I believe everyone should be a man of their word. DON'T BOOK OR RESERVE ANY OF HIS BOATS! I gave him every opportunity to uphold his promise and word! This looks bad on the company of boatseaters, Rick also said in the future to contact him rather than boatsetters. Once again showing his disrespect to boatseaters, Scott Hamlin
We rented the Ebbtide from Rick for 2 days, and had a fantastic experience getting the kids more water skiing time and getting out there and tubing. Rick did a great job of briefing us, and was extremely responsive throughout the process. All around EXCELLENT host/owner!
First off, Rick is a great guy and really wants his renters to have a nice experience renting his boat. The boat ran great and my family had an awesome time tubing and just cruising on the lake. I would highly recommend renting from Rick as you will not be disappointed. I treated the boat as if it were my own and I think he appreciates that and will provide me with more successful rentals from him in the future. Thanks Rick!!
I can't imagine a more accommodating host than Rick. Had I asked for a tour of the lake and Georgia too, Rick would have made it happen. Great host and a great boat that cruises like a gem at 3,200 just as Rick promised. I have no negatives to add, it was a flawless experience.
If I could give Rick, his boat and his tremendous hospitality more than 5 stars I would! This was our first time visiting and renting at Lake Lanier and we couldn't be happier. My wife and 3 boys and I had an absolutely fantastic time and I would highly recommend Rick and his sweet ride to everyone who reads this(unless it's on a day WE want to come back and rent again LOL). Thanks Rick!
Renting from Rick was a great experience. We met him on the dock, walked us through the boat operations and had us on the way within 20 mins! The Boat runs perfectly,is well equipped and super comfortable. We will definately rent from Rick on our next trip! Thanks for helping to making this trip exciting!
As always Rick has been amazing to rent from. We start off with some rain but turned into perfect day and Rick had the boat ready to go. We will defiantly rent from Rick again and would defiantly recommend for anyone looking to rent only book with Rick!!!!
Here to review my experience with Rick and his boat yesterday. Renting from Rick was great. From his initial greeting, his detailed explanation of the vessel and its workings and the time he took to explain the waters (where to go to do certain things) made the whole experience very comfortable and easy. The boat is exactly how it is described on the page PLUS newly upholstered seating as of yesterday which was also very nice. He was in close contact with us throughout the day if any questions or concerns arose and was there to meet us promptly when we docked at the fuel pump at the end of the day. We did quit a bit of boating for just under 7 hours and gas was not even $130 dollars. I would definitely rent from Rick again and if anyone has any hesitation, I'm sure speaking to him will put your concerns to rest.
We had a really fun time on Rick's boat. He was very responsive and helpful throughout the booking process. Rick also made sure to give us a very thorough walkthrough of the boat, as well as things to do on Lake Lanier. We will definitely be renting from Rick again in the near future and next season.
I'm just getting around to doing a review now from June, sorry Rick! Rick's boat was great and he and his wife were fantastic to deal with. Actually they went above and beyond: upon returning the boat i realized I had forgotten a piece of equipment from the boat, Ricks wife volunteered to drive back to our dock to pick it up instead of us having to make another round trip and waste our valuable vacation time. The boat was great for 4 adults & 4 kids, great for tubing and sightseeing. Rick was very helpful with all the boats features and suggestions of things to do on the lake. Fantastic people to deal with....Thank you Rick!
Rick was great to work with! He had everything ready to go and was even waiting on us!! The boat was perfect for tubing and would have been plenty powerful enough for skiing if we wanted to ski. We would, hands down, rent from Rick the next time we want to rent a ski boat!! Super nice guy.
This was our first dealing with "Boatbound" and Rick was great to deal with. Very easy rental, however the boat had an issue the night before and although most people would have to cancel, Rick worked tirelessly to get us the boat the next morning and exactly and the agreed upon time. Not only will we be renting from him again this summer, I will let everyone I know that he is top notch to deal with. The boat was exactly as advertised and the lake was beautiful. Thanks Rick,
We rented Rick's boat for a day during our 4 day High School Golf/Lake get together with 7 of my buddies from Warren High School (1976) in MI. The group gets together every in a GA location where Golfing and Boating will be easy to get to. This year we rented a house on Lake Lanier -- only a short distance from Rick's boat. It was a easy pickup and the day out on the Lake was great. We took a couple trips to see the Dam since many of my buddies have not been on the lake before. Because of the size, most of the guys could get in the boat at the same time.. its a large boat. Rick was very helpful and will rent again this summer. Safe boating and wear your Life Jacket
This was our second outing with Rick's boat, somehow its was even better than the first time a month ago. We had 6 adults and 2 children with us, plenty of space and the tube was an added bit of excitement we were not planning on having!
See you again soon Rick, Thanks again!!
We rented Rick's boat for our family vacation this summer and we had a blast!! We are a very big family and this was our first time renting a house on a lake instead of going to the beach for our vacations. We have now decided that we LOVE lake vacations and the best part was Rick's boat. My nephews had so much fun tubing behind the boat and we all loved cruising around the lake. Rick was incredible and so easy to work with during the rental process. He was very quick to respond and answered all of our questions. His main interest is for you, the renter, to have an incredible time. I would recommend Rick's boat time and time again.
We had an absolutely fabulous time on Rick's boat. The boat itself is in great condition and an absolute blast. Rick is a great guy with loads of knowledge about the lake and boating. I would definitely rent from him again and recommend that anyone reading this do the same.
Thanks again Rick!
Thanks to Rick and his wonderful boat, my family was able to enjoy an awesome day on the lake. Rick is very knowledgable and explained everything I would need to know. Rick's boat is beautiful and preformed flawless. If you are considering renting his boat and reading this, the next thing you need to do is book it, you won't be disappointed!!
Rick was fantastic, easy to work with, and very communicative. Lots of local knowledge of the lake if you've never been on Lanier.
His boat is in good condition, plenty of power, and perfect for lounging or water sports activities.
I look forward to renting from him again.
