Had a great time taking Dan's Islander out. The boat had a full tank, Dan gave a great overview of boat systems, provided beer in the color (with ice!). Definitely look forward to getting out again on Luna Sea soon!
My experience with Todd and Boat bound was excellent. The boat was equipped with everything you need and Todd made the process easy. The boat was in the water and ready at the landing....and when I finished boating...I was met at the dock.....and he took it from there. I would definitely rent again from Todd.
Rob was a good guy! His Q6 is a very nice boat and was equipped with a very good chart plotter. Rob did a good job on the pre-board review and went over all systems. He stressed the shallow water and the difficult channels of which to be cautious. Florida has a lot of shallow water and this was very important to go over. Great experience!
We had a great sailing weekend on the Shady Lady. This is a great boat, very well maintained and that does well under sustained wind (20 kn). She is well equipped too. Jake is a very helpful and responsible owner in addition to being a very pleasant person. Last but not least, Galesville strategic location offers a lot of great sailing options, North, South or Eastern shore of the Bay. I’m looking forward to my next sailing adventure with the Shady Lady!
Gautier and his crew were fantastic to work with. They rented for a weekend in October where conditions on the bay gave them everything from 30kt gusts to calm air and they handled the boat extremely well. They were very knowledgable sailors and had no issues reefing and sailing her across the bay and back and anchoring overnight. There were some mechanical issues that came up on board that were no fault of theirs and they handled the situation great and kept me informed throughout. Due to this they sailed the old fashion way without using the engine across the Bay and all the way up the West River to the fuel dock. Gautier was great to deal with and he took great care of my boat. I would endorse him as a renter and hope to get him onboard the Shady Lady again. Jake
Ilya was great. Good instructions given. The boat was fine. We had a great sail from the dock around Angel Island, into Sausolito, though Golden Gate bridge and back home. Left at 11am back around 5pm.
Our group couldn't have had a better day on the water. The boat was in great shape and very comfortable for a group of 9. With the two captain seats, comfortable cockpit and high tower it's a perfect cruising sailboat. We took her outside the gate and then back around Angel Island and finished with a swim by Treasure Island. It was a picture perfect day and I will certainly be renting from him again in the very near future!
