Our members join for a season, make online reservations to use the
boats and their only additional cost is the fuel they use. The club owns
the boats and pays for all the insurance, maintenance, dockage, storage,
and repairs. We provide all required safety equipment along with water skis
and a tube on each boat.
Clubs like this are in existence all along the east coast
from Boston to Florida and Texas. They have been around for
over twenty years. We started in 2006 on Irondequoit Bay
and expanded to Canandaigua Lake in 2009.
Our program is designed to let a 4 reservation member get
out for a half day (6-8 hours) every weekend or a full day
(12-16 hours) every other weekend. A boat is usually available
during the work week. Most 4 reservation members get out 15-20
times per season. Members at the 2 reservation level should
expect to get out 8-14 times per season.
No. We have fuel meters on each boat the record fuel used
to a tenth of a gallon. You take a reading when you go
out and another when you come in. We invoice you for
the fuel you used at the current pump rates. If you’re
out and the boat needs fuel, take it to the gas dock
where they will put fuel in and charge the club’s account.
