•All lessees of crafts are responsible for knowing where they are at all times on the lakes.
•We suggest using your maps application on your cell phone to help indicate your location on the lakes.
•All laws and regulations, no wake areas, etc. must be strictly adhered to.
•For trouble-free boating, stay in the center of all channels and lakes. The Chain of Lakes are all silt bottom lakes and have seaweed particularly near shorelines.
•ALL LAKES HAVE A NO WAKE ZONE from the shoreline OUT 150 feet. Before calling for help, check for seaweed/rope entwined on the prop.
•Distribute passenger weight evenly throughout the vessel. Too much weight in the bow can bog the boat down and be dangerous when hitting wake.
•While operating the craft keep your hands and feet in the boat at all times.
•Life vest are available on all vessels. They should be handy while on a moving boat and must be worn and properly secured at all times when participating in water sports and all children 12 and under must wear a proper life vest at all times. We recommend bringing your own for your infant if possible as there are a limited number available.
SAFETY FIRST: Busy boating days such as weekend and holidays have a much higher volume of boating traffic on the entire Chain O' Lakes and it is safer to opt out of water sports such as skiing and tubing, etc. We encourage our customers to rent during the weekday when traffic is much lighter if you wish to participate in such activities.
Please visit for additional boating/watercraft safety information. As a rental boat customer this is a resource for learning about rental boat safety. Here you can watch training videos regarding general boating safety specific to the individual type of craft you are renting as well as download safety checklists for use when renting a boat from an experienced boater to a novice, your safety is important to us.
