An easy boat to run with comfortable room for 6 people but is rated for 8. We will meet you at Lake Mead and launch and retrieve the boat for you. Willow river trip also available but fuel surcharge for the delivery trips will be charged. Rental is for 8 hours total. Overnight and weekly rentals available.
Our Sea Ray 185 Sport is excellent for a day out on the water. We take the boat out for river, lake or ocean adventures that include picnics, water skiing, wake boarding, tubing and fishing. Lake temp 85 deg right now.
Fish finder with ocean maps loaded. Garmin 44DV and it will allow you to see depths, set way points and chart how to get back to the mariner with a follow way point line.
For fishing, we made a homemade bait tank and adhoc fishing rod holder (requires 1 seat to be removed). Also 4 adjustable rod holders mounted on boat. We also installed cool cockpit LED's and the underwater plug LED for night fishing and swimming. Room for medium sized cooler (we can provide). Storage bays in the back compartment either side of engine and in cabin under aft seats.
The boat is easy to handle and excellent on gas mileage. We just did 36 miles from Dana Point to Catalina using just under 1/2 tank. We tend to stay off the lake if over 15-20 mph winds just for safety's sake. We have 2 anchors 1 for front and 1 for back if needed.
Boat seats 6 comfortably. Basic rental includes fish finder so you can see depth at all times. Marine radio so you can communicate with park rangers or coast guard. Radio has emergency button that will send out your GPS location automatically, description of boat etc to rescuers. I have a hand held radio to communicate with you also. Radio/CD player. Full tank of gas at dock. Boat has 2 large batteries to run it and a 3rd fully charged spare battery in case its needed. Cigarette lighter charger plug. We have several life jackets, paddle and throw floaty. Extra fire extinguishers on board plus flare gun, signaling mirror, distress flag, swimmer caution flag, flashlight and whistles. Boat is serviced regularly at Bass Pro Shops.
