We work very hard to keep you safe while you are here and provide a clean environment so have the ultimate vacation. These forms are here to protect us if we ever need them. Many people assume we have insurance on the boats. The fact is, no one will insure rental boats on these lakes because of the high risks of damage with the rough terrain and all the hidden obstacles right below the waters surface. We end up paying for it. We have lost a lot of money because of people committing " Hit & Runs". To try to keep our prices low, we thought we will change policy first so we have protection in place for when that happens, instead of ridiculously raising prices and passing them on to you.
