booking. This $50 will go toward your total at time of check-in. Please give us adequate notice if you need to
cancel for any reason. You may reschedule one time in same season. Same day calcelations or no show will result in full rental

the time period rented and must be used in same season. If you wish to cancel due to forecast, please refer to item #2.

A list of most common replacements and their prices is provided in each boat's dry bag as well as at the check-in counter.

the Chain O' Lakes. Taylor Lake Marine reserves the right to terminate or deny rental due to unsafe or non-sober operations.
No refund will be given in this case.

shore line of the Chain O' Lakes is primarily privately owned. We do have a few "sand bars" where people gather
but the sand is submerged by about a foot in all locations. Therefore the grill must stay on the boat as no one is allowed
on land at those locations. Hence, no charcoal. Thanks.
