We rented 2 wave runners from LDV at Sandestin last week at about $125 each for 1 hour. Prior to taking off, we were told we might have to stop during our ride and clean out the sea grass from the intake. we were told the engine would bog down if the intake was blocked, so we were watching for it. no big deal. One of the wave runners started having problems though after we got a ways out, but after checking the intake, it was clean. To make a long story short, we spent at least 15 minutes out there trying to get it to run without bogging down, and it was hit and miss. It would run fine for a few minutes, then bog down again. We never pulled any grass out of the intake, which leads me to believe it may have been another issue. When we got back to the dock, we mentioned it to the manager, and she pretty much blew us off. She did offer our kids access to their adventure park for the remainder of the day (a couple of hours), but they'd already spent a day on it earlier in the week. After taking $250 from us, they could have at least checked the engine clock to see how much time we actually had run. When we got back, they had posted a sign that they wouldn't rent anymore wave runners for the day because of the grass issue. I'm frustrated because they knew it was a problem, but had no problem taking our money and sending us out under questionable circumstances. They should have known better. We will not rent from LDV again.
