Mike was prompt, helpful and knowledgeable about the cruising waters. The Grady White was perfect for our +/-30 mile 4 hr cruise. Open waters or tight harbor maneuvering, my wife and I felt very comfortable and confident operating the Grady White and hope to get back again next season.
Brendan, You have something wonderful going with your boat and the manner in which you introduce her to your renters! Carol and I were very please you took the time to go over the vessel in detail with us prior to our departure. The boat itself is in excellent condition. We felt very secure that it would run flawlessly, which it did. Plan to rent from you again the next time we're in town!
My girlfriend and I had an excellent experience with Georg! We picked up Seahorse on Saturday, sailed until late afternoon, and spent the night moored at Angel Island (a great easy weekend trip!) The boat handles great, and is in immaculate condition, above and below deck - the mainsail is brand new, and lazy jacks make flaking it a breeze - with two sets of reef points, it's a perfect for the bay. Thanks Georg!
Absolutely great experience. Royal was at the launch exactly on time, and ran through the rental list to make sure we were familiar with everything on the boat. Boat ran absolutely smoothly, no problems at all. We made the run from Newport to Catalina, stopping at a few kelp patties and managed to pick up an unlimited amount of rat yellowtail, as well as getting into a wide open bite of yellowtail, skipjack tuna, and dorado. Just an absolutely great day. We had to make the crossing back to Newport a little slowly due to higher winds, but the boat made the trip without any problems at all, and Royal was completely understanding about us being back a little late. He also helped with cleaning the boat, which was great and made the process much faster. Overall amazing experience, will definitely rent from Royal again as soon as possible!
I have used this boat 2 times in the last month and it is awesome and will continue to use it for spear fishing and fishing. The boat is spacious and holds a lot of gear and people. Plenty of room to fish and dive. Bait tank works flawless in all condition, even keeps pinheads alive. The boat owner is prompt, professional, and keeps his boat tip top. Engine fires on first turn and gets great gas MPG.
We had a very good experience working with Thomas and renting his boat. The boat performed well, we had strong wind, then no wind, then strong wind and big waves. The boat felt safe in all conditions.
