  • Boats that will be available to rent will be posted online a few days prior to the weekend. We do not post the rentals at any particular day/time - it is when the inventory available is confirmed.
  • Members may only register for two rentals at a time. 
  • Rental reservations will close at 12:00 (noon) the Friday prior to the weekend. 
  • Rentals must be cancelled no later than 12:00 (noon) the Friday prior to the date of the rental. 
  • If you neglect to show up for your reserved rental, you will be required to pay a $25 fine.
