Mike was a complete pleasure to deal with. He was renting a home with a dock and wanted to keep the boat there. I could not approve that because of shallow water and he completely understood and respected my decision. He was on time in the morning and exactly on time upon return. The boat was returned clean and in the same condition it went out in. He is/was a boat owner and treated the boat as if it was his. He has the boating skills, that as an owner puts me at ease. I would have no hesitation in renting the boat to him again if he requested it . Thanks Mike!!
Wow! If I needed to write a one-word summary of the experience that day, that's what it would be - wow! Tom was not just a competent captain, but the consummate host. He said he would be an unobtrusive host, but as it turned out, he made the day for all of us. The day started with a bit higher wind than any of us would like, but Tom simply adjusted the agenda accordingly. We stayed most of the day above Georgetown near Three Sisters. Then, when it came time to throw the steaks on the grill, Tom stepped-in (happily) and took over the cooking duty. The water quality was very good that day so we spent a lot of time in the water and Tom has all the toys. If you don’t like the toys so much, you can always do what I did; a cannonball off the top deck. I would go back again just to have steaks grilled on his awesome grill. I could not recommend Tom any higher. And, I would add that if you are contemplating being the captain yourself, I recommend that you just relax and leave the driving (and the cooking) to Tom.
John was great to work with as we met before the rental weekend as I would be out of town when they were looking to rent. Very good communication and he sailed through some minor issues on board. Only complaint would be the boat was not returned in "as sailed away" condition and was pretty dirty above decks. If not for that would be a 5 start renter.
Everything was great! We've rented with Dmitry before, but his other boat. This one was even better! Dmitry is very responsive, on-time and flexible. We will definitely rent with him again!
