Jeff and his family were great !!!! They were punctual, eager to help, treated the boat as if it was their own, easy to communicate with, and fun to be around. He and his family made it feel like I was sailing with friends.... I look forward to more sailing excursions with Jeff and his family very soon. Five Stars
Chartering Cariblue from Bob was very easy. We took the boat day sailing, and it was very simple to park cars, get the boat out of the marina, do some sightseeing under sail, and then put everything away. Bob keeps the boat in excellent condition and provides and thorough overview of her systems and layout. We would definitely take Cariblue out for a long weekend to Catalina with two couples.
Paul was an excellent renter. He arrived on time for his checkout and charter pickup. His experience was evident during the check out and he displayed very good boating/sailing skills and good intuition. His charter was trouble free and he returned the boat on time, properly tied up and in a clean condition without any damage, breakage or loss. I would be happy to rent to Paul and his crew again.
Georg was very easy to rent from and keeps his boat in great shape. We had an excellent day on the bay and can't wait to sail again. Thank you for sharing your wonderful boat with us.
My group of 4 rented Mary's Erickson 32 for a nice afternoon on the bay. The day started with fairly light winds. Especially for my sailing-inexperienced in-laws, the light winds and the boats great performance in them allowed for a very leisurely "training session". Off in the distance (around the horn) I spotted the wind off in the distance. The inboard diesel was more than adequate to get us over there in a hurry. Once we found the 15-20kn winds, we were REALLY cruising. The heel was predictable and mild, even in heavier wind conditions. We didn't reef, as the crew were immensely enjoying "SAILING". There was very little weather helm at about 15kn and all members of the group took turns at the helm in the true bay area conditions. It was a fabulous day of sailing in all conditions and I highly recommend this Bay Beauty. Thank you, Mary!
It was great to see Mark again using the same boat. The pre-cruise went faster and he again did a great job of taking out his family and friends. They were all still smiling at the conclusion of the charter. Mark went back after his friends left for home to the boat to do a bit of extra work to ensure the boat was cleaned for the next sailor. Very much appreciated.
