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 and also offer water skis and tubes at no additional cost.
Clubs like this are in existence all along the east coast from Boston to Florida and Texas. They have been around for over 30 years. We started in 2006 on Irondequoit Bay and expanded to Canandaigua Lake in 2009. Since then we have expanded to 5 great locations.
May 15 to September 30 but we usually keep some boats in the water into October.
Our program is designed to let a 4 reservation member get out for a half day (4-6 hours) every weekend or a full day (8-12 hours) every other weekend. Weekday availability is much higher, especially during the day. Boat availability can vary by location. In recent years, our Canandaigua Lake location has seen higher demand than our other locations.
Most members get access to all our locations. Members who join after March 1 may have restrictions on some locations for that season.
No. We have a fuel metering system on each boat to the record fuel. 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.
That depends on your age as NY is phasing in a boater education requirement. See NY Boating Education for more information.
No problem. We accept members with no boating experience. Our certified instructors will have you driving the boat in no time.
A fraction of what it costs to own one of these great boats. See our Membership page for more information.
Sorry, we don't allow memberships to be shared beyond spouses (nominal fee applies). You can, of course, bring anyone you like on the boat with you.
