Wow- glad I found Boatbound and Mike! Having owned boats and belonged to Membership clubs, this experience was the best! Mike made the process extremely easy. He was away but made sure a family member met us. The boat was perfect for the price. Had a great day cruising up to Alexandria-(on vacation from Fla) treated my girls to Ben & Jerrys Ice Cream for the 1st time(Big Mistake) Went to a Dinner party immed after. Must have told 20 people in Mt Vernon about Mike's boat and the rental experience.
Eric is a top notch boater. I'll trust my boat to him any time. He has booked the rental way in advanced and stayed in touch leading up to the date. Arrived on-time and was very understanding about an unforeseen delay on my part (rescuing paddleboardes struggling against a very strong wind and opposite current). Erik was very attentive during the check-in process and brought the boat back stocked better than before the rental. He handled uniquely strong winds on that date with ease. I would highly recommend him to anyone as they'll have their boat in great hands.
Had a great time with Bob's boat. Bob told us where to go with the boat and recommended places where we could dock and enjoy the lake. He even lent us a tube so we could have fun - and we did! His boat is really nice and well taken care of . Will definitely rent from Bob again sometime this summer! Thanks Bob!
Dmitry is organized and accommodating. His run-through of the briefing was comprehensive, he was helpful in getting us out on time (despite being in the midst of rescuing paddleboarders from an unusually swift Potomac current) and the boat ran as advertized. Looking forward to the next outing.
