Candace was great to work with as we planned her trip. She was well organized, and made sure that all the details were coordinated in advance to ensure that everyone involved was on the same page. We all had a great day out on the water, She and all five of the friends were a delight to have on board. Thanks candace!
Sailing with Andy and his wife, Kris on their Catalina 42 was an incredible experience that I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a unique, memorable day on the water. In fact, a few of us are already discussing opportunities to hopefully get together with them again for another adventure this summer! As someone who was new to Boatbound and new to sailing, the experience really began when I reached out to Andy and inquired about his listing. His prompt replies throughout our communication and patient, thoughtful answers to all my questions made me realize very quickly that we had selected a highly credible Captain who would ensure our trip was safe and exceeded our expectations. Once we had all the logistics coordinated and the 6 of us arrived to the boat (which was impeccable), we were met with warm, friendly hospitality from Andy and Kris that continued throughout the duration of our 10 hour day on the water. They took time to ensure proper safety measures were in place and that we were all well acquainted with the boat before we departed. They were also very knowledgeable of various marinas and helped us decide our route. We set sail around 1pm on Sunday, June 14, 2015 from Shilshole Marina and headed for Kingston. We got off the boat there for a bit and had a late lunch/early dinner at The Filling Station, a fun pub walking distance from the Kingston Marina. We made our way back to the boat and had a leisurely sail towards Seattle where we enjoyed the beautiful skyline from the water and got to look into a breathtaking sunset as our adventure wound down for the day. The 6 of us who went sailing that day couldn’t stop talking about it for weeks. We were so grateful to have had the opportunity and in our own ways, I believe we all walked away with a renewed appreciation for our environment along with a new respect for the art and science of sailing. Since that trip, I have personally mentioned the Boatbound website along with Andy and Kris’s listing to many different people. If you are considering a sailing trip and looking for a passionate, professional team who is completely invested in your experience, I hope you choose a trip with Andy and Kris. -Candace
Eric is a fantastic person, while I was checking out the boat with him my wife was playing with his kid and I think we were all extremely happy! As far as the boat goes, it's a nicely maintained Catalina 27 and Eric seems to take care of whatever issues come up nicely. He had a good feeling for the conditions on the day of our bareboat rental and set the boat up perfectly for us.
Dennis was a pleasure to work with!!! He was very fast to reply and willing to accommodate my needs. We had his boat over the weekend and it performed perfectly. It was very easy to handle, had no problems pulling people behind it and handled rough water fine. If you are looking for fun outing on the water with family and friends this boat is the perfect match.
Scott was an absolutely awesome Owner to rent from. This boat was perfect for the bay. My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed the comfort and reliability it provided for cruising around. Scott was helpful every step of the way and is a genuinely great guy. I look forward to renting from him again and highly recommend this boat to other potential renters.
