Renters take to the waters of Lake Mendota on their preferred vessel, all of which come with safety gear and stereo CD player.<p>


Stationed on Lake Mendota in Madison, WI and Sequoit Harbor in Antioch, IL, SkipperBud’s staff pairs clients with their choice of vessel before launching them into the lakes' placid waters. Up to 12 passengers can lounge on the Sylvan pontoon’s wraparound couches as the vessel cruises past the sights on the land. The more compact Sea Ray, meanwhile, kicks up waves as it races to the dock.
