About David

“After wanting a boat for about 50 years, I finally got my Boston Whaler 15' SuperSport five years ago. We live on one of Rhode Island's salt water ponds, and this boat is perfect for exploring, quahogging (clamming), fishing, tubing, and water skiing. I provide health insurance in the Medicare community for my day job, but that gives me plenty of flexibility to enjoy the boat and the water. It's also a pleasure to be able to share that experience with my renters.”

Aboard since 2015

From South Kingstown, RI

  • David is great, spent an hour showing us around the area for safety at our request. Boat is perfect for families.

  • Dave is the best. I rented from him twice. Boat is in perfect shape and he has lots of knowledge about the area.

  • We had a fantastic day on the water in Dave's boat! The boat was well kept, in great working order, and Dave was a terrific host. He provided a tube for tubing, life jackets, and tons of great advice and navigation tips. The area is gorgeous -- lots of inlets to explore and places to tube. We docked at the oyster bar but it was packed so we walked around the corner to an ice cream place. Amazing day and terrific rental. Thanks, Dave!

  • We had a great time, he was very helpful explaining the details of the boat and pond. Very gracious person, we had a wonderfully peaceful day and lunch at the oyster bar restaurant. We were able to bring our dog, and are looking forward to going out again next year. can't wait

  • Great little boat. Peppy and smooth. Very clean and ran great. Easy to operate and in a great location. David let us use his dock to come and go as we pleased so we could go tubing in the morning, come back and swap out tubing gear for the chairs and lunch we packed for the afternoon.

  • David was a great person to rent a boat from. He was very helpful. My family and I had an awesome day.

  • As a fairly new boater and not very familiar with potters pond David was extremely helpful showing us the ropes, when he and I felt comfortable he then let me go off on my own. We had a great time exploring around checking out snug harbor, the matunik oyster farm and tubing on 3rd pond. We ended the day with an early dinner at the matunik oyster bar which I highly suggest. Thank you David for a great experience.

  • Renting David's boat was an excellent experience! He is extremely accommodating and resposive. We had to post pone our trip on the boat due to bad weather in the forecast - we were able to reschedule without a problem. We arrived on our new date where David helped us load the boat, gave us tips of the pond, and sent us on our way! He is very laid back and such a wonderful guy! We will be renting from him again in the very near future! If you are looking for a beautiful day out on the water rent from David for the easiest and best trip you will find!

  • This was our second time renting Dave's boat and again we had a wonderful day on the water! Thank you Dave for being so accommodating! He had a tube and water skis available for the kids, we brought both our large dogs and everyone had an outstanding time. I am looking forward to our next outing on Dave's boat! Thanks again!!

  • Dave is the ultimate host. The boat was immaculate and ready to go. He was very available and flexible with times.
    He had a map of the water - he highlighted the places we were interested in. The pond he lives on has lovely homes and vistas- it leads out to Point Judith and Block Island. My husband had fun catching some fish.
    We had a picture perfect day. Can't wait to do it again.

  • We had a wonderful time on David's boat! David was so easy to work with and his boat was perfect!

  • I had a nice day exploring the the salt ponds and doing a little fishing. The boat was in great shape and everything was ready when I arrived.

  • David, Thank you so much for renting your boat to us! We had a great day on the Salt Pond. Between dog beach and the Matunuck Oyster Bar for an early dinner, it was a wonderful day on the water and your boat was the perfect size and comfort for the shallow waters of the Pond.
    Thanks again, we will definitely be back again.

  • Renting from David was a great experience. He was very helpful in showing us the area and pointing out great things to see and do. The boat is in phenomenal condition and handles wonderfully weather you stay in the pond or head out to the sound. Will definitely be renting again.

  • Five star experience . I rented Whaler for 5 days. David was very accommodating . Boat ran well and has great fuel economy .

  • Really fun time with the family on Dave's boat. We enjoyed tubing the most in the upper pond (very deep even at low tide) and explored the rest of the pond. Dug some clams to eat later near the oyster farm. Docked at Matunick Oyster Bar for lunch (awesome!) and even braved the low bridge (and heavy incoming current) to Salt Pond to check out the Harbor of Refuge where we rent a house. The boat handled beautifully, and even this novice felt comfortable at the helm. Dave was so helpful getting the tube rigged and pointing out shallow spots and rocks to avoid. We will be back -- a beautiful spot and perfect boat.

  • David was very flexible and accommodating. The boat is meticulously maintained and was perfect for a day on the water in Potter Pond and Salt Pond.
