Damage Occurrences & Rental Deposits
In the event of damages, payment for reparations will be deducted from the security deposit. A minimum of $500 will be charged for a damaged prop & or skeg, and a minimum of $3,700 for lower unit damage. Boats and Jet Skis require a $1k security deposit on the day of rental. The deposit will be refunded upon return less credit card fee, provided no damages have occurred. Note: Deposits are not returned if damages occur. However, if the cost of damage exceeds the security deposit, we will charge the authorized card which we have on file for the remaining damage costs. If the charges are declined by the credit card company, an invoice will be sent to you to be paid immediately.
Watercraft rentals are available while supply lasts. Any type of damage done to the equipment will be taken from your security deposit or credit card. Note that we are not responsible for any injuries related to use of the tubes, boards, ropes, or any other watercraft equipment.
You must return the watercraft with the same amount of gas it held at the time of rental. Must refuel at Burkeshore Marina and provide a date and time-stamped fuel receipt upon return. If the boat is not returned with the correct amount of fuel, you will be charged for fuel shortage, to be deducted from your security deposit or credit card. The rate stands at $1 per gallon over the current fuel dock pump price for gas used during the rental period.
