“Experienced boat owner”
Aboard since 2013
From Seattle, WA
Tim's boat is in great shape, handles waves nicely while cruising. Engine starts up with 1-key turn. Ended up anchoring in Juanita Bay, and with the useful depth finder on board we were able to know when it was a good depth to anchor up.
Bimini top is in great shape and provides great shade when necessary.
Finally, Tim is a great host and made the whole experience very easy.
Tim was exceptionally accommodating and helpful for our last minute booking. Kudos also to the Boatsetter staff in Florida who expedited things for us. The little Hobie trimaran is a wonderful craft for teaching grandchildren the basics of sailing. I especially like the inboard paddles which facilitate maneuvering close to docks and shore (or when becalmed). We had light winds, which were perfect for teaching, but I can see this little boat could get pretty exciting in a stiff breeze. Highly recommended!
Three of us chartered the C&C 29 for a weekend in July. We had a glorious sail to Blake Island where we spent the night at anchor and then the next day sailed all the way back to Shilshole. It was a fabulous trip. The boat is old but in good working condition, the sails are newer and in good shape. It was easy to learn the boat. Tim was excellent in orienting us to the boat and making sure we had everything we needed for a fun and safe trip. We highly recommend the boat and Tim.
Tim was really helpful throughout the process on our charter. He was fast, responsive and eager to insure we had a good experience -even down to offering to help us with provisions when we were delayed in arriving. The boat was in great shape, clean and fully equipped. We'll look forward to chartering again next time we're in Seattle!
Tim was great to deal with. He responds promptly to inquiries and keeps his boatbound calendar up to date. Prior to the sail he provided us with details about the boat and operating instructions. On the day of the sail he met us on time at the dock and got us checked out on the boat. Everything was very smooth and professional. Highly recommend.
