Does anyone have any recommendations for places to rent a catamaran (preferably like a Hobie 16 or maybe something a little bigger) in the Tampa to Ft. Myers area. I will be spending a few days in Venice in the middle of March and it has been a little to cold to get out on the water here in Michigan.

On the other hand I would be very willing to rent a boat from a fellow member of the forum for a day if you were interested and you're cat is in good shape. If you are considering I have 4 years sailing experience, two of which are on my own Hobie 16 and summer crewing on a 35ft mono-haul for fleet racing. Not boasting, just trying to show that I'm not an idiot when it comes to sailing.

I'm in Punta Gorda, the 16 just needs a winter washing.

I rent for rum.

There's a place to rent on the causeway out to Honeymoon Island Park, in Dunedin, FL. Just north of Clearwater.

A couple of rental places I'm familiar with:

Clearwater: http://www.clearwatercommunitysailing.org

Ft Myers: http://www.adventure-watersports.com/rentals1.html

Dunedin: http://www.sailhoneymoon.com

I haven't rented from any of them but I've heard others speak in positive terms for all three. Come on down the water's warm(er).

Hmmm, Tackle Shack is in Pinellas Park.

Also, the DoubleTree Hotel on North Redington Beach has a Wave and Getaway for rent

What week are you going? I'll be at my inlaw's place the last week of March- the first week of Apr. No boat either this time save for some SOT kayaks though...
