Boating When You Can’t Swim

There’s nothing like the feeling of taking a boat out on the open water.  There’s the serene sound of the waves crashing against the stern and the texture of the salt water in the air.  Sadly, many people who are boating with non swimmers feel as though they can’t even set foot on a boat since they don’t know how to swim. They’re stuck on the shore, wistfully watching others sail off into the distance.

A day on the water is a rewarding experience that’s often overlooked due to fears about boating with non swimmers. But the reality is that you don’t have to know how to swim to enjoy a boat rental.  A high-quality boat rental firm will guarantee that all passengers, regardless of whether they can swim or not, understand how to stay aboard.

After a few safety precautions, they will make certain you stay safe and have fun out on the water even if you can’t swim. These are the precautions:

Always wear a life jacket

State law always requires all passengers under the age of 12 to wear a life jacket while on the water.  Additionally, at least one life jacket must be available for every single passenger on board, regardless of how old they are or if they can swim.  Anyone who can’t swim should wear a life jacket for the length of the excursion. Most ship rental companies need any passengers that are physically or mentally impaired, elderly, or weak swimmers to wear a life jacket in any way times. Do not worry about pride, worry about safety.

Follow safety instructions closely

It is important to adhere to all safety instructions, regardless of whether you are a seasoned boater or a first-timer.  Before anybody sets foot on the boat, you must go through a list of security instructions. This should include a comprehensive overview of safety and emergency procedures, such as the best way to evacuate the ship, if someone goes overboard, or what to do in any other emergencies.

Extra tips

While it might look obvious, it’s particularly important to use common sense when on a boat.  Boaters should always steer clear of vessels, never travel at dangerous speeds, and constantly remain sober. Additionally, you’ll be prepared for whatever Mother Nature throws your way if you check the forecast ahead of time.  Take precautions or consider postponing the trip if there’s a possibility of rain. It is always better to stay off the water than to risk lives.

Summary, Safety is our greatest priority.

Renting a house boat or a fishing vessel can be fun for the entire family- using the right security precautions, of course.  Each of our boats are secure, clean, and well-maintained.

Moore ATV Rental Accidental Damage Waiver

We offer an ACCIDENTAL DAMAGE WAIVER for $25 PER ATV – The Accidental Damage Waiver is NOT insurance. It simply affords you limited protection against your liability to the owner of the rental unit for physical damage of the rental equipment while in you care. If a Damage Waiver is purchased and you damage the rental unit, you would ONLY be legally responsible for any and all damages up to the full amount of the damage deposit paid to repair the rental unit – instead of the entire out of pocket costs. Damage Deposit, specified amount up to $1,000 PER ATV, Credit Card information will be held and NOT charged, unless damage has occurred to ANY ATVs while ATVs are in your care. If all is well when you return the ATV at the end of your scheduled time and no damage has occurred, damage deposit per ATV will NOT be charged.

PURCHASING THE ACCIDENTAL DAMAGE WAIVER MEANS ANY DAMAGE AMOUNT EXCEEDING YOUR DAMAGE DEPOSIT WILL BE WAIVED.

EXAMPLE: ATV HAS COLLISION AND THE WHEEL GETS BENT AND PLASTICS ARE BROKEN. THE REPLACEMENT COST WOULD BE CLOSE TO $550. WITH A DAMAGE WAIVER PURCHASED, THE ONLY CHARGES ARE THE $150 DEPOSIT. THIS WILL SAVE $400 JUST IN PARTS. 

WAIVER DOES NOT COVER LOST OR STOLEN ATVs OR ANY DAMAGE CAUSED BY MUDDING, JUMPING, RACING, SINKING, FIRE, TIPPING, ROLLING OR ANY OTHER VIOLATIONS OF THE GENERAL RULES OF OPERATION AND SAFE USE.

DECLINE ACCIDENTAL DAMAGE WAIVER: If the Accidental Damage Waiver is NOT purchased, you will be legally responsible for the full amount of damage, which can be up to $8,000.00 for the full replacement of the equipment, plus any downtime which can include additional recovery fees and loss of used equipment.

If there is any damage upon your return, we will provide a written estimate for repairs within 24 HOURS. This includes parts, taxes, labor and rental down time. Any damage to a part constitutes full replacement of that part.

We will notify you of the estimate and then charge the credit card used for your deposit unless other payment is arranged. If your credit card does not have enough funds to pay the the replacement cost, you must pay in cash or wire transfer WITHIN 24 HOURS OF RECEIPT OF ESTIMATE.

THIS ACCIDENTAL DAMAGE WAIVER IS NULL AND VOID IF ANY RENTER RIDES OUT OF DESIGNATED RIDING AREA OR INTO ANY RESTRICTED AREAS

Prior to departure and upon returning of the rental, we will inspect the machine with you and note any damages. During your rental, you are legally responsible for any and all damages to the rental that occurs while in your care.

If all is well when you return the ATV at the end of your scheduled time and no damage has occurred, damage deposit per ATV will NOT be charged.
