“Owned a beneteau first40 and a nicholson31 Grew up in a sailing family”
Aboard since 2014
From Berkeley, CA
Changed his booking to three days later after I had already pulled the boat out of the dry stack (you're only allowed four pulls a month without extra charges).
Showed up 30 minutes late for the pickup and one hour late for the return.
Refused to pay for fuel he used - about $300 worth - even after I reminded him to fuel up before returning the boat.
Left soiled toilet tissue in the head and dropped an unused roll of toilet paper into the water.
Did not hose down the boat, pump the holding tank, or fill the water after the charter, even after I reminded him to do so.
Left the boat tied up poorly, with fenders improperly placed.
Left the battery switches on.
Left the boat unlocked on return.
I would not recommend renting to this person.
