We had a blast again on Michael's boat. We liked it so much the first time we booked a second. He is a great "host" to work with on boat pick up - great boat to cruise around Lake Union with friends in town.
I highly recommend James and his boat for a great rental experience. James was very professional throughout the entire process. We had 7 adults and there was plenty of room for everyone to get comfortable. The ladies loved having the flushing head on board. I added this boat to my favorites list because I plan on renting it again.
I can echo other reviews. Bud was pleasant to work with throughout the process, although unreasonable as we closed out the rental. We were assessed a $350 charge for damage done to the prop on his boat that occurred on some prior outing. Bud insisted that we ran aground during our trip which is simply not possible. Of this, all 9 boaters in our party, including our captain, are supremely confident. My recommendation to other renters it to take photos before and after your journey and insist that an inspection happen immediately upon return and while you are present. Bud inspected the boat the next day while we were not present and we didn't inspect the prop before or after our trip. Had we taken these steps we would have been protected. We were unlucky enough to be the latest renter when Bud realized there was damage. We had no recourse but pay for the damage, but under protest. Bud's a nice fella but renters should always take care to protect themselves.
