Christian was prompt, thorough and kind when explaining the functioning of the boat and handing it over for us to use. The four-hour rental began when he stepped onto the dock after kindly backing us out of a difficult slip spot, and explaining the boat. The location of the slip provides very quick access to the Bay. The boat was in generally good condition and the furling headsail came in handy. Engine gave confidence. Interior cabin was impeccable. Mainsail hoist and adjustments are at the base of the mast. The lines are in good shape. There is no cunningham and no leech line, which would have given some control over what appears to be a well-used main sail. The only real drawback was the additional, and surprising, $50 fee that was not posted on the Boatbound pricing description. He described the fee as related to the explaining the boat and handing it over to our group.
My family and I had a wonderful time cruising on Christian's boat. Christian made the handoff very easy and provided helpful knowledge about the boat in particular and surrounding area. "Air Transport" is well used, but very well cared for, with a just installed new mainsail. We only day sailed, but the cabin is amply outfitted for overnights and we appreciated the running refrigerator and easy to use electric head.
The location of the marina is really convenient as you it's as close to on the Bay as you can get which minimizes motoring time. There is easy access to the Bay Bridge (more wind up north) and plenty of options for exploring many points of interesting within sailing distance.
I look forward to renting from Christian again!
Christian was incredibly helpful and easy to communicate with. Was available to answer some questions by phone during our multi-day sail as well. Boat was in great shape and well appointed (A/C crucial, TV, coffee, microwave, sheets). Perfect for the long weekend with just the two of us aboard, but would have been more than comfortable for 6 for multiple days.
We had a great time aboard Air Transport. Everything was as advertised and Christian was a gracious and flexible host. We did have a minor issue with the jib halyard (no big deal), so sailing performance was slightly diminished. Despite that, we were able to sail a good bit during the weekend and found the boat to be easy to manage and fun to sail. Would love to take it out again soon!
Seven of us spent a fantastic day on the Christian's Hunter this past Saturday and had a great time. Christian was very responsive as we made our reservation a few months out. On the day of, Christian was helpful in getting us acclimated, yet very low-key, which we appreciated. The boat handled very well under some gusty winds. My wife and I could have easily sailed the boat ourselves, though it was nice to have a crew of willing participants. The cockpit was very comfortable for our group and the cabin is spacious with a nice clean head, etc. When we sailed back in Christian, again in a nice, low-key manner, checked things out quickly and we were on our way. If he'll have us, we may knock on Christian's door again next year.
We rented Christian's boat during Labor day weekend. The booking process was very smooth, and Christian was very responsive and flexible. On the day of our rental Christian was very helpful in explaining how everything worked and showed us around. The boat is well-outfitted, comfortable and well maintained. She could be easily sailed by a crew of two. As our first Boatbound rental, could not have been happier. We shall definitely rent one of Christian's boats in the future.
Had a fun day sail on Christian's boat on Labor day. Boat was easy to sail , was clean and well prepared. Christian was very helpful , and answered all our questions. During the booking process Christian was very responsive and guided us through the steps we needed to complete.This was our first Boatbound rental and we shall definitely be using the site again and hopefully sailing on one of Christian's boats in the future.
Christian was very nice and very accommodating. My husband and I and our two children (2 and 4yo) had a lovely time. Unfortunately there was not enough wind to use the sails, but Christian took us out to see a beautiful light house.
Christian was reliable, accommodating, and responsive and seemed genuinely to want us to enjoy our experience. The boat was perfect for our trip and we had a fantastic time with it. Would recommend Christian and his boat to a friend.
