  • Guy is real nice and this boat is great on the water, plenty of power, overall very nice boat well kept.

  • It's always a pleasure to rent that Whaler from Rusty. Great experience and will do again!

  • Rusty was great to work with and answered all questions we had. Highly recommend him to anyone looking to rent a boat for the day. His boat was very nice and clean, everything he said it was.

  • Rusty was helpful and provided a boat in great condition. I look forward to renting from him again.

  • Renting from Rusty was great. We really enjoyed a day on the water exploring and seeing things we could only see by boat. The boat itself is easy to launch, operate and has enough room for 5 adults.

  • Every detail was professionally handled. Rusty is old-school, customer oriented and the boat is in perfect shape.
    This was my first experience using Boatsetter - I hope every trip will be as good as this.

  • Rusty was very accommodating and the boat looked great! We had a wonderful time and would definitely rent from Rusty again!!

  • We had an awesome experience renting from Rusty. This was my 1st time using Boatsetter so I really did not know what to expect. Rusty was very fast to respond and his boat was was in excellent shape. We had a great time fishing and cruising the back waters of Oak Island.

  • Rusty was very easy to deal with and his boat was awesome. We didn't have any trouble. The boat started right up each time. The one thing I did not realize is that you have to pick it up on land and take it to the boat ramp. Extra $50 for launching it. No big deal though as Rusty made that process very easy too.

  • My family and I had a great experience with Rusty and his boat. His responses were prompt, he gave good recommendations, and included everything we needed for our trip. Overall, on our part, it was an effortless adventure and we had a great time. We would definitely recommend and rent from Rusty again.

  • Rusty was very accommodating and we had a great time on his boat, perfect size for my wife, dog, and I. Thanks Rusty!

  • Rusty is our ''go to'' for boat rental always a great experience renting from him. The boat is always in great shape and you can't beat the price. Thanks Rusty

  • Rusty was a great guy to rent from. Ready & willing to answer any questions & very helpful in all regards & by the way, his boat is in excellent condition & a great ride. Thanks for renting to me.


  • I think this is the fourth time we've rented and it has been perfect each time. Quick, clean and easy!
    Perfect boat for the area every time.
    Thanks Rusty!

  • Everything was great again! Boat is a perfect size for what we like to do, explore and sit on a quiet beach.
    Thanks for having this boat available, look forward to the next trip.

  • Well, everything was easy and spot on. The pick up spot was really convenient to the ramp. The boat was clean and easy to handle. Spent 7 hours exploring places all up and down the waterway. Great experience for us all and will definitely use Rusty again.

  • Wonderful experience. Had a great time. Rusty even let us borrow his personal hitch will be doing business with him again on future vacations

  • Rusty and our experience was top notch. He was fantastic to work with and he is highly recommended. First, he answered every question we had. Second, he made sure that our safety equipment worked perfectly. Third, he advised the best places to go while boating. His advice as to where to go and what to do while on the water was so helpful. It made it one of the best experiences that our family has ever had. We saw nature at its finest. Furthermore, his boat was in impeccable condition and ran perfectly. Rusty put my family's safety first and showed great patience while accommodating our needs. He made our safety and enjoyment his top priority. Please convey our sincerest thanks to Rusty once again for everything that he did for my family in making our boating experience on of the best days that we ever had.
