… for your continued support through the years. In 2011 I took over managing Rent-a-Boat and I have enjoyed being a part of the community and getting to know the families that regularly come to spend time on the water. As of today, I will no longer be managing the company as I am moving on to focus on completing by bachelor’s degree and to continue on to graduate school for physical therapy.
I also wanted to let you know that Rent-a-Boat is now under new ownership. For those of you that have purchased gift certificates with us, I wanted to let you know that purchased gift certificates do not expire and the new owner (Lee’s SUPs) will be honoring all purchased gift certificates. The Facebook page is now Lee’s SUPs.

I hope to see you on the water this summer! I will miss all your smiling faces!
Happy New Year!
