Can anyone give us some insight on renting a houseboat for 8 in July for a week? We are two families with teenagers who want to rent jet skis, fish and take hikes on shore. We are looking for a nice boat to accommodate everyone comfortably and one that has good air conditioning and won't break down!
My family did this many years ago and we had to carry all our gear down a big hill in a wheelbarrow to load and unload the boat. It was hot and tiring! Before we could even take off from the dock, the owners had to replace the battery on the boat which delayed our trip for many hours. Also, the air conditioner was useless (not good in August) and someone siphoned our gas from our truck in the parking lot while we were on the lake! Sorry to say that I can not remember the name of that company but it was so long ago they may have changed things anyway!
