    Harris 220 Pontoon Rental on Mountain Island Lake, Charlotte, NC

    We rented Bob's boat along with his lake cottage and everything was perfect despite cooler-than-expected weather! Bob was very flexible with the start time of our rental and quickly walked me through all the equipment/controls needed. The boat was in great condition and had plenty of power to pull my kids on the tube that Bob provided and water skis. The bluetooth sound system was easy to sync with and was an added bonus. We will definitely rent this boat again!

    Harris 220 Pontoon Rental on Mountain Island Lake, Charlotte, NC

    The boat ran perfectly and is in great condition. The pickup location is convenient for driving in and the dock is in a visible spot on the lake near Mountain Island. The boat was gassed up and ready to go when we pulled up. The kids had a blast with the tube. We'll be back for sure!

    Harris 220 Pontoon Rental on Mountain Island Lake, Charlotte, NC

    We rented this boat for my daughters 15th birthday. She and a friend had a great time tubing, swimming and relaxing in the sun. The boat was awesome, everything was just as listed. I would definitely recommend and we will rent again. Mt.Island Lake is very nice.

    Harris 220 Pontoon Rental on Mountain Island Lake, Charlotte, NC

    We thoroughly enjoyed using the boat during our trip. Bob cleaned and disinfected it between users, and he was available for any questions we had. Overall great value and vessel! One thing we learned is that Mountain Island Lake does not connect to Lake Norman, and there is a great shallow area to anchor up and take a dip!

    Bob is a class act. Got us all gassed up in the morning walked me through the map of the lake. Very nice guy and the boat was better than I expected. Bluetooth capable radio, nice sound, plenty of oomph to go tubing, comfortable, clean, and everything working. Would highly recommend his services. Thanks for an awesome day on the water!

    Harris 220 Pontoon Rental on Mountain Island Lake, Charlotte, NC

    We had so much fun renting this boat. It’s in great shape. Very pretty boat. He made it easy to meet him and take possession. He even had a nice tube there for the kids. He also gave us a map which was great because some of the other boats we have rented did not give us a map of the lake. One thing to note it is a smaller pontoon. It fit our family great because they were six of us. Any more than that it would be a little squished. You could do seven comfortably but eight would not be as comfortable. I loved that the boat has a table. At lunch we pulled out our stuff and we found a nice beach and had our little picnic. The one thing I think that needs to be improved is the life jacket quality. There was one small lifejacket that fit my son, there is a baby life jacket that is in good shape we didn’t need that one, an extra large life jacket that fit my husband, a very nasty yellow lifejacket that looked like it had molded and it fit one of the girls. My mom and I did not have one to fit us and we had another teenager that didn’t have one to fit her. He did have the orange lifejackets on board which are great for floating on. I don’t think those are the best for tubing. The other thing about the lake that I wish they had was a gas station because we almost ran out of gas. We went into a lot of areas and sat and swam but we also drove up to the dam. We really wanted to explore the lake and on our way back we were holding our breath if we would make it. I love the lake it was so clean and would definitely rent his boat again. We were so excited to see all the paddle borders and kayaks because we are buying paddle boards next week and hope to explore from that angle.
