“Retired after 23 years in Air Force - my wife thinks I should have been in Navy! Have cruised the Great Loop for a year, made two pleasure trips to Alaska in our boat and numerous trips in San Juan Islands and BC. Also do boat deliveries for builder - Seattle to San Francisco, Ketchikan to Seattle, Georgian Bay - Annapolis, etc. Just enjoy being on water and working on our boat! Always upgrading "stuff" like new dinghy & motor last year, new Garmin electronics, etc.”

Gerry was a fantastic host and well prepared. He made the rental transition smooth, easy and quick. The 43’ Pilothouse, Wander’ Star, was everything we were looking for during our cruise through the San Juan Islands. He gave us crab pots to use and included kayaks as well. The kitchen is updated, clean, organized and easy to operate. The shower and state rooms were large enough to stand and move around. The engine power and size of the hull cut the rough water with ease. I highly recommend renting through Gerry. I look forward to my next excursion on the Wanderin’ Star!
Fantastic Boat. Completely outfitted. Like new condition. Fuel efficient. We had a great trip through San Juans for more than a week. Gerry was great, with complete checkout. He cares for his boat. I have rented many boats through charter companies, so I was uncertain about using Boatbound through just the internet. My experience was even better than major charter companies.
I chartered the North Pacific 43 captained by Gerry Travers for a half day cruise from La Conner to Utsalady Bay off Camano Island. We were completely happy with our cruise and with Gerry. Gerry provided a good safety orientation to the boat prior to departing showing us fire extinguishers, life jackets, etc. Gerry is gregarious and charming and one could easily chat with him for hours. We did enjoy that but Gerry was also completely comfortable with my husband and I going up top and snuggling together to enjoy the cruise. Gerry commented more than once that, "it's your cruise, so do what makes you happy". We highly recommend Gerry and his beautiful and well equipped trawler.
Gerry was on the spot ready with a big smile. He welcomed us genuinely and helped us get settled for our daily excursion. He joined in with us easily with laughing, eating, talking to the children. He is very easy going and helped with making the day fun and memorable. The boat is beautiful and I would recommend it to anyone.
