Charlie was a great renter from initial interaction, communication and meeting him and his First Mate. We had about an hut walk through and sea trial where I was confident in his experience and seamanship to take my boat for a two day trip out of the West River. He provided confidence that he would not push the boat and there were no indications that he did. I was very pleased with how he left the boat secured back at the dock. He backed the boat in and she was secured and cleaned in the same condition that I would leave her.
I would highly recommend Charlie as a renter, but hope his next rental is back on the Shady Lady.
