Meet the Striped Tomato!  Up to 5 guests can lounge and enjoy some time on the water in this restored 1975 tri-hull runabout.  Price includes a captain to ensure your time on the water is spent having fun instead of worrying about the boat itself.  The Striped Tomato is always available on Longview or Blue Springs lake for no extra fee.  It can be taken to other lakes upon arrangement, although renter is responsible for any necessary permit fees. Your time spent is yours and could include any of the following: cruising listening to music, anchored and swimming in a cove, tubing, fishing, photography session on the water, magnet fishing, romantic date (at least as romantic as it can get with a captain!), or even a night time cruise watching stars or meteor showers. I appreciate your interest!  Please reach out to discuss what you are looking for.

    Brad was great, we went out for some late afternoon boating and sunset cruise for my teenager's birthday, it was perfect. Brad was very flexible and accommodating, and we really enjoyed his music choices (even if he isn't a swifty) and sense of humor. The rate was very reasonable and we all had a great time.

Additional Terms & Information

Waiver and Release: I, the renter or guest(s) of the renter, fully understand that I am boarding a privately chartered vessel. I am fully aware of the inherent dangers involved and understand and assume the risks and hazards associated with boating. These risks and hazards include, but are not limited to, the following:  Sun, rain, lightning, water spray,  and any other weather conditions; sea sickness; pitching and rolling; slippery and wet decks; injuries, internal or external, from: boarding and disembarking the vessel; animals; Perils of the body of water; equipment failure; and the unintentional conduct of any other person on the boat.   I understand that I have a duty to exercise reasonable care for my own safety and I agree to do so. I further understand that this trip is not recommended for anyone with pre-existing conditions such as circulatory problems; high blood pressure; heart conditions; pregnancy; weak bones; knees, back or ankle problems.   I assert that I am physically fit to ride on a boat and I will not hold vessel “Striped Tomato” and or Brad Walsh (herin-after referred to as the Captain) responsible if I am injured as a result of any problems (medical, accidental or otherwise) which may occur while chartering the vessel or otherwise participating in the trip.  I understand and agree that I will not hold the Captain liable for risks and hazards associated with boating, and I expressly release them from all such risks and hazards.  The renter and all guests aboard the Striped Tomato agree to listen to all orders by the Captain, else the rental will be terminated early without refund.      Rental Agreement: The Rental begins at the designated departure time, not at the time the renter and any guests arrive.  All groups are recommended to be at the boat at least 5-10 minutes prior to departure.  Please allow extra driving time in case of traffic.  A grace period of 10 minutes is generally available but is not guaranteed.  Charter duration includes docking (loading) and undocking (unloading).    If an unforeseen circumstance occurs that could delay the group, a call should be made to the Captain to see if arrangements can be made to alter the time of the rental.   Captain reserves the right to cancel any rental where the party fails to arrive within a reasonable time of the scheduled departure time.   The Captain in his or her sole discretion reserves the right to cancel the trip within 2 hours of the departure time due to weather, mechanical failure, or any situation that could pose a safety risk. In this instance, customers will receive a full reimbursement, or an alternative day may be scheduled pending availability. In the event the trip has to be terminated after it has already begun due to inclement weather the Renter will only be charged for time spent. In the event, someone suffers sea sickness or has the captain return early for any reason, no refund will be given for lost time.
