Paul was very responsive and on time. Everything went smoothly and my friends and I had a blast in his boat. He thought of everything and boat comes included with skis, wake boards, and an inflatable three person super fun towable deck seat. We went to Castaic Lake and had a blast. Will rent again.
This was a great experience that we would definitely like to repeat. Bill was very thorough, patient and friendly with us. The boat and the accessories were awesome. Bill made everything easy for us to have a great day on the lake!
We had such a great day on the lake with Bill’s boat. The boat itself was brand new and super high tech. The touch screen and blue tooth made everything so easy. It had everything you would want for water sports…wakeboard, wake surf board and a great tube. Bill was super nice and spent time giving us a thorough explanation of how everything works. He was kind enough to help us launch the boat and bring it in to the dock when our day was finished. Very easy communication throughout. Highly recommend Bill’s boat!
We had a great time. Bill is very patient and does his best to ensure all renters have the same great time that we did. His boat is brand new and packs a punch. To future bookers, please note that the boat is powered by two impellers; use caution with tow ropes. Have a blast—highly recommended!
Bill was awesome! He was punctual, had great vibes and everyone enjoyed his company on the boat. Definitely recommend and can't wait to rent from him again. Thanks Bill
Paul was very good at communicating before, during and after. Everything was on time and we all had a great time. Paul even spent extra time finding a knee board for us to use and that made all the difference with the kids. Would definately recommend renting from Paul.
