Rental Boat Disclaimer: Boats are NOT rented as ski crafts due to insurance requirements. Pets are NOT allowed on rentals boats. No grills of any type are allowed on rental boats. All standard safety equipment is supplied with the rental, at no additional cost.

Damage Deposit: A damage deposit authorization in the amount of five hundred dollars ($500) will be retained by WSM for the entire rental period of the boat at the time of pickup. The deposit is to be returned in full or partial upon inspection of boat by a WSM attendant upon return. Any damage, normal wear and tear excluded, will be deducted from damage deposit. Any portion of damage deposit not applied to the boat repair shall be returned to RENTER within 30 days of the reservation return date. Renter is responsible for any damage that happens to the boat during the rental period, even if it exceeds the damage deposit.

Gas and Oil: RENTER is responsible for all oil and fuel used during the rental period. All rental boats will go out with a full tank of gas. Single day rentals will be charged for fuel used upon return of boat. Multi-day rentals are responsible for the gas at the time it is pumped during the rental period, as well as when the boat is filled up upon final return.

Cancellation Policy: No shows will be charged out at full price. Cancellations within 48 hours of the rental forfeits the reservation deposit, unless boat can be re-rented in which the reservation deposit will be returned.

Mother Nature: We understand there are days that are not boating days – WSM Office will make the final determination on weather related cancellations. If WSM determines the weather to not be safe for boating, the rental reservation deposit will be returned.

Single-day rentals: WSM makes every effort to work with our renters on days that are not boating days.
Raining at 8 am and radar shows a washout for the remainder of the day – WSM would honor the cancellation and return the reservation deposit.
Raining at 8 am and radar shows clearing by late morning – WSM may offer additional options for the rental to accommodate the weather. A half-day option may be available if WSM has determined the weather has cleared by the 12:30 half-day rental start time.
8 am and it is hazy with the threat of rain and thunder showers in the afternoon. This would not be considered a weather related cancellation. The reservation deposit would be forfeited, unless the boat was re-rented and WSM would return the reservation deposit.
Multi-day rentals: 
As with single-day rentals, WSM makes every effort to work with our renters on days that are not boating days.

If WSM determines the weather is not cooperating on the pick-up day of the rental, depending on the weather forecast the option for a later pick-up with a half-day rate for that day or a single day cancellation would be allowed.

If there are days within a multi-day rental that are not boating days – we understand but we do not have control over mother-nature and do not discount for those days within multi-day rental.

Final determination will be made by the WSM office on all weather related cancellations. Contact WSM office at 603-744-2900 or stop in to our office to discuss weather related cancellations.
