“Looking to rent my boat to responsible parties.”
Aboard since 2017
From Austin, TX
We had a nice half-day boating trip on the lake. Frank was helpful and accommodating in scheduling the trip, including rescheduling for a different day because of the weather conditions. The boat was in very good condition, no issues at all.
Such a seamless experience! Corresponded with Frank via text once we finalized the booking. Day of, we met him at the dock, he gave a brief tutorial, and then we were off. He even included a tub upon request so we could go tubing. You can tell Frank is a seasoned expert!
Boat was great, excellent for wakeboarding, makes a nice clean wake. Good power to pull you out of the water. The only complaints is the speedometer wasn't working which makes it a bit harder to get the speed dialed, and the rope handle didn't have any of the grip cushion on it so you hold to bare metal which can be a bit rough on your hands as the handle is thin. Once you get a hang of it you can guide yourself by rpm. If he would fix the speedometer and rope handle then it would be 5 stars! That said, the price is very competitive for the type of boat. Renting a proper wakeboarding boat is difficult at lake Travis especially if you want to captain yourself. Frank did provide excellent service, the launch was convenient but plan to come at least 20 minutes early as it does take some time to load and put the boat in the water.
Everything went as promised.The boat was as described and was ready and waiting.
However, the guy who drops off the boat and picks it up is a sarcastic kinda ass. He refused to use the winch on the boat to load it (literally 6 more inches) when I was only trying to be safe with his boat. While giving instructions he ended it with "waiting on you". Lol
Everything went great with the boat, but I would probably seek business elsewhere next time.
- Boat docks out of easy location from Downtown Austin.
- Easy and quick parking
- Good communication with Frank, mainly text.
- Boat is in great shape and ran smoothly.
- Labor Day weekend and boat ramp was packed, so took about 30 mins off our allotted time , but not Frank’s fault but would have been nice to be able bring it back 30mins later to compensate.
-Tube on boat with rope and skis.
-Bluetooth stereo worked great and sounded awesome.
-I rent boats frequently and Frank’s gets an A+
Frank was so responsive throughout booking process. His team was early to launch us in the water. Boat was great for showing our family around Lake Travis and wakeboarding. Transparent in gas cost too! Can’t wait to rent from Frank again! Thank you for wonderful experience renting from you!
Frank was awesome - the boat was ready right on time, all the skis/board/tubes ready to go. Getting in and out was quick and easy and we had a blast!
Boat was in great shape and clean, and had no issues all day. We’ll definitely be back
Frank went above and beyond helping us with our boat rental when we had a missed placed phone. He helped us by meeting us more than once to locate phone. We had placed the phone in the side pocket of the boat and some how it made its way to an unexcessable location!! What are the odds!?? The boat was clean well maintained and easy to operate. Go with Frank, you won't be disappointed!! We look forward to another great experience with Boatsetters and Frank. I was a little sceptical at first, but no worries about Boatsetters! The communication and experience was steller!
Great day on Lake Travis! Frank was super communicative and flexible with our needs. Frank ensured we had everything we needed before we went out for the day and helped us clean up at the end of the day. The boat and equipment provided were in great shape. We would definitely rent from Frank again!
Frank was right on time and ready to share information about his boat. Easy launch and we were off for a great day on the lake. The boat ran great all day and easily handled tubing and wakeboarding for our group of 8. My daughter's 16th birthday excursion on Lake Travis was a huge success and Frank was a big part of that.
Frank was great, he made everything so easy. He pulled up we loaded our gear in the boat, he gave us a run down and supplied everything we wanted tubes, knee board, wake board, even the children's life vests. Highly recommended. Great boat.
Enjoyed the boat although Frank did not have a red flag on board for down skier. Also not happy about the $35.oo fuel surcharge. The rental included surcharges and taxes which should have covered fuel. Not disclosed adequately.
Since moving to the area we have rented several boats. Our experience with Frank was by far the best. Frank has a great personality and is great to work with. The boat was in great shape with no mechanical problems. We had eight people on this boat and we had plenty of space. The last couple boats we rented were around 18 ft the few extra feet of this boat made all the difference not only in space, but the ride is much smother. Most of the day we spent pulling a tube or someone on skis. For as hard as we ran the boat it did great on gas. One other thing Flank does not nickel and dime you on tubes and skis he charged us nothing for the use of these items. We will be renting from Frank again when we need a boat.
Frank was great to work with. Showed up on time. Had everything we asked for on the boat. This was our first time to rent a boat through this site and it was very easy. We had a great time on the lake. Thanks Frank!!!!
Frank was awesome. He was super communicative, went out of his way to get extra water toys and to make sure we had life jackets that fit our little ones. On time and prepared as well as for pick up. Even very patient with someone who hasn't driven a bot into a trailer before. Would rent for sure with him anytime.
