What to know?
Read the law, our cancellation policy and our agreements BEFORE you rent so you know your responsibilities. All watercraft operators must comply with Wisconsin DNR licensing and operating requirements. Visit dnr.wi.gov for more information.
We are NOT a school nor do we provide any training, navigating or operating instructions. You are required to show up with sufficient knowledge, skills and capabilities to carefully inspect, operate and navigate the watercraft you are renting. We will review key machine features with you but are not allowed to “instruct”.
In order to reserve a boat, you must pay the entire amount of rental upfront. We have a very strict cancellation policy so read it carefully.
You will receive our boats fully fueled and must return it that way. We suggest our Prepaid Fuel Option because finding fuel on your way back or carrying it in can be a challenge.
We do NOT offer any kind of insurance nor are you in any way insured by us. You assume full liability for damage to rented watercraft & accessories or 3rd parties. Contact your insurance agent regarding coverage. Damaging or destroying our watercraft can be expensive and you will have to pay according to our terms and conditions. Read them carefully before you decide to rent.
We will collect (charge) a $1500 per machine security deposit to cover any incidental expenses or damage costs. Assuming there's no damage or incidentals, your security deposit will be refunded within approximately 10 days. If there IS damage or extra charges we will advise you of the cost and deduct it from security deposits. If the charges exceed the security deposit amount we will require immediate payment of any remaining outstanding balance.
Note: you are expected to return the boat in a similar condition you found it, less ordinary wear and tear. Large scratches or tears, damaged props (no matter the extent), missing or damaged accessories, etc. are not ordinary wear and tear.
You must put clean anchors of mud, remove any trash, empty live wells, wipe up spills and wipe down upholstery, and stow gear back in its original spot. Bring any bait, fish, personal life jackets, lotions, sprays, trash, coolers, etc with you. Failure to follow these rules will result in an “Excessive Cleaning Fee” of $125.
Unless you selected the prepaid fuel option, all watercraft must be returned fully refueled with 91 octane ethanol free fuel. Otherwise a Refueling Fee plus cost of fuel at $4.99 per gallon will be assessed.
