Alright, alright, those last couple were too easy, but how do you think you did on the rest?  Those are some pretty basic things to know when you are out on the water.  If you have any questions at all before you take out one of our Lake of the Ozarks boat rentals, our knowledgeable staff is happy to answer them for you.  

Learning to handle yourself and a boat out on the lake isn't difficult, but a little wisdom ahead of time can go a long way towards a safe and successful trip. There is still plenty of incredible boating weather in the near future here at the Lake of the Ozarks, and our Fall rental prices can't be beat.  Let BomBay Boat Rental Company get you out there a few more times before this winter.
