Boating Safety Tips for Your Boat Rental

Summer is finally upon us, and the only GREAT way to enjoy it is by getting out on the water for a fun weekend! Yet, if you don't have a boat, how are you going to cruise across the water's surface? By renting a boat at the Lake of the Ozarks, of course! At BomBay Boat Rental, we provide the best watercraft rental at the Lake of the Ozarks, and we want YOU to have an amazing time out on the lake. There are a few things you can do ahead of time, though, to make sure your trip is not only fun but safe as well. Here are a few safety tips to keep in mind when you rent your boat.


Be Prepared

You can never be over-prepared when planning for your boating adventure. If you have no experience with the boat you'll be piloting, you can watch some online videos to get up to speed on the technology that is aboard the craft. You also want to make sure you are familiar with the Lake of the Ozarks before getting out on the water. We have a HUGE lake with many twists and turns, with many coves to chill out in and main channels to cruise, if you aren't familiar with the lake, it can be easy to get turned around. Make sure you have maps either saved to your phone or bring along paper copies.

Choose Your Boat Carefully

By choosing a boat you are familiar with operating, you can save yourself some hardship. We have two boats to choose from, a ski boat and a tritoon. Both are easy to operate, but if you are more familiar with one over the other, that may be an easy way to make your choice.

Know the Rules of the Water

In order to keep everyone safe, the water patrol is always out to make sure that everyone is following the rules. Don't be caught off guard by not knowing what the rules are when you're out on the water. Different states have different rules, so even if you are aware of the rules in your home state, they could be different than the ones we have here. A quick Google search should be able to help you learn what you can and cannot do while out on the water and help avoid unnecessary penalties to ruin your outing.


Check the Insurance and File a Float Plan

When renting a boat from a company, you need to make sure that you are aware of the insurance involved. It will provide peace of mind knowing that you are covered and protected. You should also file a float plan to let others know where you'll be going. You can include information about where you are departing from and where you'll be, and keep emergency contacts close by.

Take Dad for a Ride for Father's Day!

Did you know that Father's Day is only a few days away? If you didn't, we are happy to remind you that you still have a few days to find the perfect gift for dad. Unfortunately, this pressure can sometimes instill fear in the hearts of sons and daughters as they realize that, once again, they have to decide what to get dad that he either 1. doesn't already have, or 2. will actually use. We understand the struggle, so BomBay Boats is here to the rescue! Here are three reasons to rent a boat at the Lake of the Ozarks as the BEST gift for Dad ever!


You're Buying Fun

When you buy a boat rental as a gift, you aren't just buying something that will be put in the closet and not used (neckties, anyone?). You are buying a gift that dad will be able to enjoy for a day or even a week. Do you want to really surprise dad? Get him a boat membership! Our memberships only go on from April to September, so you only have to pay for the times that he will ACTUALLY be using it. The summer months are the perfect time to celebrate dad and buy him a FUN gift that everyone can enjoy. Because let's face it, your dad has made sacrifices and worked hard his entire life to make sure that you're happy. Do you want to know what he really wants for Father's Day? The opportunity to see everything pay off, and his family happy.

Making Memories

There are so many memories to be made when you take a boat ride. From cruising down the main channel to checking out the aquatic trail, coving out listening to fun tunes, or hopping on the water skis to try new tricks. It's an adventure for the entire family and something that everyone will enjoy. If dad is a fishing guy he may LOVE to have the new perspective of fishing from his boat versus the dock or land. He may even catch the biggest fish of his life! It's time to make memories with the man you appreciate and admire, and those memories will be perfect when on a boat rental at the Lake of the Ozarks.

It Can Be Used - Easily!

Not only can a boat rental be used by your dad, but most likely it won't be a gift that's forgotten. Between kids and grandkids, everyone is going to want to get out on the water and have a fun day, so NO ONE is going to let dad forget about this gift *wink*. There is still all summer for dad to use his boat rental, so don't feel like you need to gather the troops this weekend and make a fun event on short notice. Give your dad the gift of a fun boat rental for father's day, and then work with him to figure out the best weekend to enjoy. Not to mention, we have boat memberships that are perfect for the day, weekend or week.

Renting a Boat at the Lake of the Ozarks

No matter what the occasion, renting a boat can be much more practical than purchasing one. Because of this, we've created membership plans that make the deal too good to pass up. Whether you want to take dad out and celebrate everything he's done for you or your water have other reasons to rent a boat and enjoy a day on the BomBay Boat Rental team would be honored to take you aboard and show you the ropes!

3 GREAT Reasons to Rent a Boat

It's a summer pastime. Getting out on the water, enjoying time with friends and family, soaking up the sun, and trying your hand at new watersports. Of course, if you don't own a boat - that can prove a bit challenging. That's where BomBay Boat Rental Company comes in! Our boat rental company at the Lake of the Ozarks is the BEST place to get your boat for any amount of time. Here are three GREAT reasons to rent a boat this summer!


1. Best Bang for Your Buck

Buying a boat can cost a lot of money upfront, but to make matters worse - if you don't use the boat a LOT you may come out on the short end. Because of this, BomBay Boat Rental has created a membership plan that helps you to come out on top from the start. To make it even better, with our membership plan, you only pay for the months out of the year that you USE your boat.


Options & Features

Weekday plan, 7-day plan, or 
Family or Shared plan

1-time membership fee

Only 6 months of payments
(April 1st – September 1st)

4 Advanced reservations per year
( for a 48 hour time period)

Unlimited access through 1-day
advanced reservation
( 24 hour usage time)

Can use all 4 locations

Cancel anytime,

2. Rent NEW Boats

One of the biggest scares for renting a boat is that you could get a 'lemon' but that's not the case with BomBay Boat Rental. We ONLY rent boats that are new. This year we are featuring boats from 2017 - and when your rental is delivered to you, we are sure you will be 100% satisfied with the quality. We have a Cobalt 220 Ski Boat, a Sylvan Mirage Tritoon, and two SeaDoo Jet Skis to choose from. If you're ready to hit the water in a boat that is top of the line, and not more than a year old - we can help!


3. NO Maintenance

Finally, the best reasons to rent a boat is that you don't have to do any of the maintenance. Your boat is always ready, all of the time. You can head out on the water and know that all of the annual maintenance has been finished, the filters have all been changed, and there aren't any malfunctions that haven't been corrected.


It's Time to Plan Your Summer

It's never too late to make your summer plans - if you want to enjoy your summer days out on the water, BomBay Boat Rental wants to help you. Our Lake of the Ozarks boat rental company is committed to providing you, the customer with the best rental fleet on the water.
