I rented Brian's boat with some friends for a Sunday afternoon sail. There were 7 of us total and it was a very comfortable size for us. It was very clean, fun, and easy to manage. Would definitely rent again.
The reviews are consistent with Mike's great response and attention to detail. His Boston Whaler 21 footer was super stable on the Bay and in great shape. We hope to rent from him again!
Eric was nothing short of a pleasure to deal with. Easy going, accommodating and full of local knowledge. His Catalina was perfect for our group of 5. It's roomy in the cockpit and has plenty of space below. Feels more like a 32! She handled well on our way over to Angel Island, where we picked up a mooring, had a picnic and went for a swim. On our way back we had a stiff breeze but the boat handled very well under full sail. Sailing out of Berkley Marina is wonderful. It's well protected and has a great view! Thanks Eric, we'll see you again!
Enjoyed the boat very much, it was all that was advertised, and we had a wonderful day on the Bay. We had 6 big-sized adults on the boat and there was plenty of room. The boat was fun to sail, and performed very well when the wind picked-up in the late afternoon.
The boat is very well-equipped and comfortable. Rides comfortably in semi-rough seas, is fuel-efficient, and has a surprisingly good turning radius. It doesn't turn well in reverse, however. Top speed is about 8 knots, so you must plan sufficient time to get anywhere. Scott does a good job orienting new renters, he has good documentation for those who need backup, and he stands ready to offer support during the trip. Could be tough navigating the rather tight slip, but we lucked out that the partner boat wasn't in residence.
