“I am a retired Marine Corps Officer who has boated on the Potomac River for the past 8 years with family & friends. I am new to Boatbound this year (2016) and look forward to sharing my boat and knowledge of the Potomac with you. I am a licensed Coast Guard Captain authorized to carry up to 6 paying passengers, so if you want to experience the Potomac on a large powerful boat but don’t have the experience to do so safely, I am available to serve as your captain and guide. Typical day-trips include motoring north to the DC area to enjoy the sights of our nation's capital or to partake in the offerings of the many river-side restaurants in VA, MD, or DC. ”
Aboard since 2015

Our sunset cruise with Ken was phenomenal!!! My family of 6 adults cruised with Ken on a Saturday evening from Hope Springs Marina and enjoyed swimming and tubing at a nearby beach. Ken was an incredible host! His laid back and friendly personality made us feel instantly at home, and his boat was beautiful and spacious. The water was smooth and the scenery was goregous! It was hands down one of the best experiences we have had and we definitely plan to do it again. I highly recommend Ken and the 260 Sundeck to anyone looking for a relaxing but exciting cruising experience!
We had a fantastic time with Captain Ken! He took us to some great hidden spots to float and enjoy the water along with some great dockside bars. He was very accommodating, professional, and just a good person to be around. I highly suggest spending the day on the river with him!
Kenneth was a great captain! We accommodated a last minute booking and even went out his way to accommodate my desired harbour to depart from! His boat was great and spacious, I highly recommend booking Kenneth and his boat - I certainly will again!
Kenneth was an excellent host - both friendly and accommodating. His SeaRay is in excellent shape, and was a lot of fun to explore the Potomac on. Nicely equipped, it had plenty of room for all of our gear and provisions and lots of bells and whistles to make the voyage comfortable. It rides quiet nicely at speed and handled waves and wakes well. Ken went out of his way to make sure we had a great time, and I look forward to renting from him again.
He was 5 star all the way. Extremely accommodating, knowledgeable, pleasant, and fun!!!
My boyfriend stated it was the best Father's Day he could have possibly imagined.
We had 3 teenagers with us and they too had a blast.
Would definitely book with Ken again as well as highly recommend him forward
We had an amazing full day out on the boat with Kenneth over Memorial Day weekend. Kenneth was a pleasure to work with, from responding to my inquiries and questions promptly to meeting us on time and making us feel very welcome on his boat. The boat was the perfect size for our family of 6, and it was in perfect condition. He was wonderful with my two daughters and inflated some fun inflatables for them to go for a swim in the river. He also took us to a fun restaurant right on the shore of the river that was tasty and a fun experience (they picked us up with a pontoon boat water taxi). Lastly, he even accommodated my daughters' requests to go fishing, which we fit in for a little while at the end. All in all it was a beautiful day - we'll definitely do it again!
I am blown away by how great this experience was. Ken was extremely knowledgeable and professional and, at same time, made the entire trip fun and care free. He was on time and we communicated flawlessly. He knew where all the boating hot spots were and pointed out monuments and historical sites too! Ken had water bottles on board, a very clean boat and bathroom and even provided rafts for us to use. Even more, the weather in DC has been erratic and Ken found new times and solutions, so we could still go out on our trip without the rain affecting us. It was an incredible experience and I will be contacting Ken again very soon! Thanks Ken!
Kenneth was a great renter. He made sure I was comfortable in the boat, and that I knew my way around the river before my rental. The Sea Ray was a great boat too, and it even had a bathroom, which is perfect for a full day rental. I definitely recommend him, and hope to rent from him again sometime soon!
