We had a fantastic sail on Gideon's boat. He was a pleasure and made sure we were comfortable and enjoyed our ride. It was a highlight of our trip to Burlington. We highly recommend this boat versus the others as it is very intimate.

We had a wonderful mid-day sail. Gideon is knowledgeable, competent and interesting. The lake is spectacularly beautiful as are the views of the Adirondacks, Burlington and Camel's Hump. The boat is very comfortable. We look forward to returning!
