Q:

Can we reschedule for any reason or just rain? Do we decide what a "rain date" is? i.e.: excessive wind, or drizzle, etc. or do you? What is the reschedule deadline? 24 hour or same day? Can we go to lake Monona, Waubesa or do we have to stay in Mendota?

Karen E.  asked on  Apr 28, 2013

A:

You can reschedule if you are not comfortable with the conditions at anytime. You can boat on the chain where time permits.

Q:

1. Can I buy 2 and use them on the same day to equal a full-day of boat rental? 2. Also, could I maybe get a smaller boat for a longer period of time? I have a group of 2 adults and 2 kids.

David B.  asked on  Apr 27, 2013

A:

Using 2 in the same day depends on the schedule. Cordinate that with the rental manager. Our boats in the fleet are about the same size. We dont have anything smaller for you to rent.
