What You Need to Know Before Renting a Boat
- Know what you can handle: Boat rental services are patient to first-time renters. Many offer brief safety courses that you can take well ahead of your rental day. Take advantage of this opportunity before you rent. Also, some boats are easier to handle than others. Pontoons are the most beginner-friendly, but you can still find a high-speed boat if your experience is vast. Basically, there is a boat to rent for everyone.
- Book in advance: Boat rentals fill up quickly when there are long weekends ahead. Make a reservation and know for certain that you will be on the water that day. Also, many boat companies have minimum ages for rentals. If you are under 25, you want to call ahead and be sure you meet their age requirements. That way, if you need additional time to find someone older to make the reservation on your behalf, you have it.
- Be prepared: Weather changes quickly on the water. You may want to hang out on deck in your swimsuit all day, but the weather may not cooperate. Be prepared for rain, wind, sudden cold and other conditions besides the sun. If these arise and you do not have additional layers, you will be miserable.
- Learn the rules of the water: Your boating adventure can be easily ruined with bad decisions and lack of knowledge. Boat accidents are often bad, and you will owe the rental company damages as well as anyone who was injured by your negligence. Even if you take the rental company’s safety course, review the rules of the water before you take your vacation. read this marine board website and watch videos on YouTube.
