Boat Rental

Postby TheDave » Sat Jun 15, 2019 9:47 am

I know there are a few expensive boat rental places in the area. However I was wondering if there is anyone nearby that would be interested in renting out their boat for a few days while we are camping at Fish Creek. We will be at Fish Creek from June 29 to July 6. I would insure the boat for the time we used it and would take full responsibility for any damages. Not that there should be any. This would be for a family of 4. Looking to teach the kids to ski and do some driving around Upper Saranac. For some reason I can not convince the wife to trailer a boat from Chicago while I drive the Truck and camper.

Hickoks Marina, right on the Ponds, does rent some boats. I believe a couple are still family-sized runabouts, but that may have changed. They weren't late-model boats, probably from the late 80's, but they'll get you around. I believe they had 50 hp outboards, skiing may be a challenge if your progeny are adult adult-sized kids. I am not sure if they still rent the runabouts, but they're close and will be cheap in comparison. Good luck!

I never knew there was 24/7 gas on Upper Saranac.

Any idea if that still exists? Hopefully it's high octane, ethanol-free.
