If the equipment or accessories are damaged am I responsible for it?
If there is a problem with the jet ski we will determine what the cause of it was and from there make a determination of who is responsible for the damages. As part of the rental agreement the renter is responsible for the jet ski while in their posession and any damages that occurs during that time. For any questions please ask beforehand.
Do I have to mix oil and gas for the fuel?
No, it takes unleaded gasonline just like your standard car would take.
What is the difference between a jet ski, seadoo, or waverunner?
A personal water craft (PWC) is a recreational watercraft that the rider sits or stands on, rather than inside of, as in a boat. Models have an inboard engine driving a pump jet that has a screw-shaped impeller to create thrust for propulsion and steering. They are often referred by the names WaveRunner, Jet Ski, or Sea-Doo, which are brand names owned by Yamaha, Kawasaki, and Bombardier, respectively.
What kind of vehicle can I use to tow the jet skis with?
we don't have an absolute answer to this because of different vehicles have different configurations, but give us a call and we can help point you in the right direction.
What do I need to tow the jet skis with?
We require that you have a class II or better hitch attached to your vehicle properly installed and maintained. All our trailers take a 2 inch ball that you will also need to attach the trailer to your vehicle.
What kind of wiring do your trailers use?
We use a 4 pole wiring configuration with our trailers. Before you leave we will do a precheck to make sure that your vehicle and the trailer is in good working before you leave. If it does not work we cannot let you leave with the jet skis so please check all your connections before you come.
What if I don't have any of the above?
We do have ball mounts, hitch balls, and electrical connection plugs for rent for a small fee. Unfortunately we do not have the actual hitch for you.
