Frequently Asked Questions

Below you can read some frequently asked questions. If you have any other questions or comments contact us today!
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.
May 1 to September 30 but we usually keep some boats in the water into October.
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.
You can be out as late as your reservation allows, even overnight. There is no need to be back in before sunset.
No. All new members attend our orientation which includes on-the-water practice operating a boat. We take as much time as needed to get you comfortable handling the boats.
No problem. We accept members with no boating experience.
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.
A fraction of what it costs to own one of these great boats. See our Membership page for more information.
