“Native So Cal & San Diego - Residents of San Diego for 35+ years. We have been the sole owner of our Bayliner for 10 years. This is a great boat for watersports or just to cruise the bays in San Diego. No experience necessary but certainly a plus! We are happy to share our boat with you and your family~”
Aboard since 2014
From La Mesa, CA
Delivery was prompt, price was right. It served our purpose of having some fun on the water. Word of caution however, towards the end, the steering got so stiff that it came to a point that it was actually dangerous. Hopefully the owners have addressed this. Once fixed, I would recommend for a day of fun!
Sorry I did not get back sooner for a review. But as soon as we got home my mom passed away so had leave for Illinois on Thursday. Got home Sunday and left. But we had a great time on your boat. You both make it so easy to rent your boat. I recumind you to everyone who ask where we rent at. See you next year stay safe. 😀😀👍👍
Bill and Linda are exceptional boat hosts :) We had an amazing time on the bay and their boat was perfect for our family to enjoy the sights, seals and the best of San Diego.
Bill was very thorough in making sure our experience was the best it could be.
I had a wonderful time! Bill and Linda are very friendly and helpful I would not hesitate renting from them again. The only minor issue I had was that the boat would not idle very well and it could get tricky getting it into gear, but once you got it going it would run just fine. It is not enough of an issue to keep me from renting it again.
Bill and Linda made the rental process, handoff, and instructions so easy and smooth. The boat performed great. Bill and Linda were sure to explain the boat's features and operations. I would rent from them again anyday.
Bill and Linda are great to work with, and the rental experience was smooth and easy. There were five of us on the boat for the day, two adults and three teenagers. There was plenty of room for us and our gear, and the boat's condition met my expectations for the low rental rate. Our day was spent in Mission Bay towing the kids and exploring the bay. All in all a great day, and we will definitely look to rent this boat again.
William & Linda were awesome. When we picked up the boat they described in detail everything we needed to know. They kept in constant communication prior to our arrival date. Had one issue raising the prop all the way up when leaving the marina. No problems towing boat back to their house tho. William was able to raise the prop. Other than that everything was great. Wonderful experience with BoatBound. Thank you
My group had such a wonderful time renting William and Linda's boat. It was the perfect size for a small group and very easy to drive and maneuver. For a reasonable fee, William and Linda even launched and towed the boat for us which was very appreciated considering we did not have a vehicle to do such. They were very helpful and informative telling us about the boat and were very easy to communicate with. I will absolutely be contacting them again next time I plan to rent a boat. Thank you for a great time!
Rental from Lunda and William was great and the day on the bay was fabulous. Communicated primarily with Linda ahead of rental and she was very responsive to our questions. Interacted with William day of rental and he took the time to review operation of all systems, as every boat has its own unique characteristics. I also like that William started the rental clock from the time we pushed off from the dock rather than when we met at the dock.
Overall great experience.
This was the second time renting with William and linda. Like the last time it was a great time on the water and they were very accommodating, as well as easy to rent from and still good quality rental. Thanks again and you’ll probably hear from us again before the season is up.
Worth every penny, William and Linda Hale are gracious, warm and friendly, I would do business with them any day. The boat was clean and every bit the implied value. My dad had a great day out on the water and that is what I wanted more than anything. Now he want's to go again so the Hales and I have created a monster... lol. All the same thank you William and Linda. we'll be renting again or I'll have to buy a boat... Again, thank you.
William and Linda were fantastic. My kids already ask me when we can rent the boat again. The boat is very comfortable, the equipment is solid and the launching is very easy with this boat. Thank you William and Linda for enabling us to have a great day on the water!
Our family had the best day ever, thanks to William and Linda! They take such great care of the boat and made us completely comfortable with the rental. Boatbound.com is like VRBO for boat owners...pride of ownership, quality rentals, excellent prices, and easy to do! How did I not know they existed? I've already recommended it to my friends!
Our experience with Boatbound and renters William and Linda was excellent. The communication through Boatbound with William and Linda was fantastic. The boat itself worked flawlessly. We had the convenience of meeting them at the boat ramp in San Diego Bay. All our expectations were exceeded. We will definitely rent from William and Linda again. Thanks for an awesome day on the bay!

William an Linda were very,very nice. The waters around San Francisco were beautiful and their boat ran so smoothly. Also the boat was very nice to relax in and have a great time with the family in. I would recommend anyone looking at this boat to rent it,as it was such a nice time for me and my family,and will be the same you you and your family too.
We rented William and Linda's Bayliner this past September. The boat was great! Everything was in order and Linda/Bill will were awesome to work. Price is just right and they had everything ready for us. This was the easiest boat rental ever. I highly recommend them!
Our first experience with Boatbound was very good. We rented the boat for half a day, and William brought it to the boat launch for a reasonable fee. William and Linda were very cooperative, and the boat was perfect for a cruise around Mission Bay.
The boat was in great shape and was perfect for our family. The open bow was not obvious in the photo of their boat so we were pleasantly surprised. This boat was probably the highlight of our vacation and William and Linda were both extremely kind and easy to work with. The boat was delivered to the boat ramp nearest to our hotel for a very reasonable fee. I highly recommend renting this boat.
William and Linda were great! On time and everything as promised. We were a bit skeptical at first, but all the great reviews were nice to read and a big help in assurance. We would definitely recommend them and rent from they anytime. Thanks again for helping our family have a great vacation.
We had a perfect experience with William and Linda with renting their boat over the past weekend in San Diego. They were very professional and great to work with! Their boat was perfect for our family. We will be back to rent their great boat from them! Thanks for a great experience!!!
Both Linda and Bill are wonderful people and they enplaned the whole boat operation (it was our first experience boating and water skiing) and since my car did not have enough tow capability they dropped and picked up the boat at the bay for a reasonable charge. My kids had a blast and if I go to San Diego again I will rent their boat again. two thumbs up.
Rented their boat for the 4th of July and were very accommodating with everything including the times of which the rental was for on that day. They had excellent recomindations based on their experience as well. We rode around San Diego bay and docked in Coronado for lunch. The boat itself was perfect for what we wanted to do and extremely fun. I will definitely be renting from William and Linda again.
