Fines and Policies
Our policies are not meant to keep you from having a good time on the water, but to keep our boats in the best condition as possible. We want everyone to have fun, and these were put into place to help insure that. Please be respectful of other renters as well as our policies.
Thank you and have a great day on the water!
A cleaning fee will be given if the boat is not returned in the same or close to the same condition it was in when it was rented. Renter will have the opportunity to clean the watercraft, but if renter chooses not to do so there will be a charge of $50 if the boat will take extra effort to clean than usual (extra amounts of mud, worm dirt, food, trash, etc.). In the event, the boat needs more detailed cleaning and will take more than 15 minutes to clean there will be a $100 cleaning fee.
You will have the opportunity to clean it up yourself, but if you choose not to do so there will be a charge.
Please be courteous of the renters who are renting after you.
There is a dumpster in the parking lot that can be used. Please do not leave your trash on our dock. We have cameras and you will be fined for leaving your trash. Leaving trash bags/coolers full of trash will result in a $50 fine.
$20 fine if you do not rinse the anchor off in the ski boat, and the boat is muddy when you return. Please help us keep the rental equipment clean and mud-free for the next renter.
Tear in Seats and Canopy
$50 every 1/2 inch- this includes cigarette burns!
No pets are allowed! Be respectful of other renters. There will be an automatic $200 fine, $50 cleaning fee, the rental will be ended without a refund, and renter will be charged for any damages. No exceptions.
If you leave trash on the boat that would take up more than a thank you bag to clean up you will be charged $10.
Please take your trash with you. If you need a trash bag while you are out on the water we have some for sale.
$25 fine for chewed gum on any part of the boat, and could cost more if it cannot be removed.
If there are any stains from clothing, etc left on the seats it will cost a minimum of $60. If the stain will not come out and the entire seat has to be replaced that will result in at least a $200 charge.
Please be careful and aware of what you are wearing!
It is against the law to overload the boat past maximum capacity. You are not only risking getting a ticket, but you will be fined $200 from us, and will be required to take off the additional people.
Speeding in the idle zone
It is against the law to speed in the idle zone areas and is extremely unsafe. Speeding will result in a $200 fine and your rental will be immediately forfeited without a refund. It is the renter and driver's responsibility to know all lake laws. Please help keep our lake safe!
Tying up to other boats
Renter will not tie up with other boats or pull up alongside other boats- including waverunners. There will be an automatic $200 charge for tying up to other boats. This causes expensive damage to our equipment. You WILL be charged for doing this and for any damages that may occur! Please help us keep our equipment looking nice!
Unauthorized Driver and/or Unlicensed Driver
$200 for each driver that does not meet our requirements and is not authorized by an employee to drive the rental equipment. The rental will also be immediately stopped without a refund. Providing false information will also cause your rental to be immediately stopped without a refund, and we will notify the Sheriff’s Department.
Flipping over PWC and filling with water
$50 plus pay for any damage that may occur.
RENTER understands that if they beach the watercraft or go within no less than 100 ft from shore they will have their time on the water forfeited and will NOT be refunded, will pay for any damages that occur, and will be fined the $200 beaching fee. ABSOLUTELY NO EXCEPTIONS! RENTER understands that there could be debris and rocks close to shore, and they will be running the risk of damaging the prop, impeller, lower unit, and hull of the watercraft if they do so.
If you rent a boat overnight please DO NOT leave food on the boat. We are called Raccoon Lake for a reason.
This will result in a $50 fine as well as the cost of damages if one of those little critters damages the boat.
Disorderly and Unsafe Conduct
If you are pulled over by law enforcement, caught by us, or we get calls from other boaters on the water about your conduct you will immediately be brought back to the dock and your rental ended. You will NOT be refunded or given a time credit. We do NOT tolerate any unsafe and disorderly behavior of any kind! Boating is meant to be fun, and we want to keep it that way. Listen to instructions and make sure you follow all of the rules to ensure a great time on the water by everyone.
The operator of the watercraft is NOT allowed to consume alcohol – same rules apply as if you were on a road.
Please be responsible and have a designated driver.
