Really had a great time on the boat. The owner Joe was an A+ fisherman and was a pleasure dealing with. I went out with two of my buddies for some fluke and we had plenty of fish on the line! The boat was the perfect size and we had more than enough storage for our stuff. The live well even kept our fish alive until we got back to the dock. I would highly suggest renting this boat to anyone looking for a nice day on the water.....unless it's on a day I want to rent again.
Julie and Billy were such great crew to work with. Thanks to mother nature, we had a very mild and smooth sailing environment for Julie's first time! Billy was the best helmsman so far and also tacked like a pro, due to his extensive experience. It was a great pleasure crewing the boat with them and I would recommend them to anyone in a heart-beat. They are welcome back anytime and looking forward to the next cruise. Hopefully they can accelerate their boat buying plans to become boating neighbors just like they accelerated The Meridian!
I can't say enough about how awesome this sail was. Dick was very professional and personable. This was my first time sailing and he did everything to make my sail as enjoyable as possible. Dick is very knowledgable about the sea and sailing. His boat was very clean. He is comfortable to let you take the helm while he adjusts the sails. He allows you be as hands on or relaxed as you want to be. Once we were back on shore Dick relaxed with us and wound the day down with beverages and conversation. I am looking forward to another sail with him very soon. I suggest a sail with Captain Dick soon! You won't be disappointed.
Ryan and family really were a fine group of people and a ton of fun to go out with. they really held on as we sailed all the way to Redondo Beach! We got to stop in front of Terranea and go swimming in the ocean, it was fun to jump in water with them. I would highly recommend him and family and a professional and clean group.
Both pickup and return went smoothly. Super easy to drive. We took the boat over to Lake Washington and had a lot of fun! We'd definitely rent this one again.
