My Family and I rented the Sweetwater 2086 from Doug at Flat Creek Marina in Chandler for my Dad's birthday. The initial experience leading up to the rental was great. The day of the rental things changed. We got the boat Saturday morning and my brothers were excited to tub and go fishing. First there was no safety flag for identifying there was a person in the water and several spots along the railing were damaged, and the rear swing gate would not open. But more importantly after a mere 45 minutes into the ride the boat came to a stop and would not start up again. Waited for 1.5 hours for Flat Creek Marina to come with the mechanic and to tow us to the nearest dock. All in all, was told the lower unit drive gears locked up which prevented the motor from starting or running. Ended up being told by Flat Creek Marina that we would receive a 100% refund as this was a boat issue and not our fault, which was relieve. Flat Creek Marina was hands down the best marina to work with during this nightmare, and made the overall day great. The kids got to end up enjoying the lake at a nearby Pavilion to swim and BBQ.
Terrible experience. We never even dealt with Doug, the supposed owner of the boat. If you rent this boat, then you will not be getting a great experience at all. You will be funneled through the Marina and deal with marina staff. Our boat ride was cut short when the lower unit on the boat went out. We immediately called the Marina and they sent out another pontoon boat to tow us in(we had been in the water for 1 hour). It took them 1.5 hours to come and get us. We were never offered another boat and then we were accused of breaking the engine. There was electrical tape over several areas on the railing of the boat and they told us to try and "keep the kids away" from those areas so they don't get hurt. We had 4 very disappointed kids. We are now walking out the claim with Geico.
BoatSetter is a terrible experience. They double booked our res. We had family out and didn't get to go boating. I wish I had an alternative. However, the people at Flat Rock Marina are great and compensated for Boatsetter's mistake.
