Aboard since 2014
From East Islip, NY
We rented Carl's boat for a 2 day weekend, and had a wonderful time sailing the Great South Bay. The boat is easy to sail and sails beautifully. There were four of us on board and we were very comfortable in the berths. We had an issue with the onboard battery getting depleted quicker than it should have, otherwise the trip was everything we could have hoped for. Carl was very responsive and made the pick up and drop off smooth and quick.
Carl's Hunter 31 is immaculate and kept in great shape. We had a joyful experience renting from Carl and sailing the Great South Bay. Booking to pick-up and orientation to checking back-in was seamless, quick and hassle-free.
We would rent again without hesitation. Thanks for a great weekend!
This was my second time sailing with Carl's boat. Agin he exceeded expectations taking care of welcoming every member of the crew.
Communication was excelent and all went better than expected.
Carl's boat is very well taken care of, it's a joy to sail on it around the bay.
Thank you Carl, and looking forward to sail agin soon in your boat.
We had a great time on Carl's Hunter 31. He did a great prep letting me know the nuances of the boat, and the four of us had a blast on the Great South Bay. I would recommend Carl and his boat, and I look forward to chartering from him again.
Wonderful, well-maintained boat. Carl is a super nice guy and very helpful. Definitely plan on taking her out again.
Another gorgeous day on Carl's boat. Wind was blowing steady 15 with 20 knots gusts which the boat handled wasily!
my friends didn't want to leave the boat!
Thanks again from all the crew!
We had an AMAZING day on Carl's lovely sailboat this past Saturday! Carl was extremely helpful, responsive, and SO easy to work with -- our original date had to get pushed back because of a foul weather, and he was so flexible in rescheduling it without any hassle. As I hadn't sailed in a while, he offered to come out with us for the day, which put a lot of pressure off my chest. He made sure to explain all the in's and out's of the boat and the nearby area, which was all so helpful.
His boat is meticulously cared for, and she sailed like a beauty! The main was getting serviced so we ended up sailing on just the jib, but it was no big deal after the wind picked up in the afternoon. We sailed around a bit then anchored out for a lunch/swim break, and sailed for the rest of the afternoon along the bay. The bay was much quieter than I had expected -- the peaceful day of sailing was exactly what we were looking for, away from city's hustle and bustle.
Everyone enjoyed their day out on the water, swimming, sailing, relaxing, and playing the ukelele. We're more than certain that we'll be back very, very soon! Thanks for everything again, Carl!
This was a last minute arrangement, but it worked out great. Very well organized opeeation. Great boat, great location, and the wind cooperated!
We will be back!
Thank you Carl!
What a lovely experience and a lovely vessel! Carl was waiting for us and mad sure we found the marina without an issue. He explained me the basics of the boat patiently before our day trip. The boat was very clean and in excellent condition. It is very well equipped, you can tell Carl is a dedicated sailor who loves his boat. We had a lovely day of sailing across the bay and anchored where Carl recommended. The boat performed as it was new. On our way back I gave Carl a call and he came in 10 minutes.
Overall it was a GREAT experience, a GREAT owner and a GREAT boat.
Will definitely repeat soon.
I have chartered many boats from commercial charter companies, but I have never experienced such a responsive and welcoming attitude. Carl is very responsive and helpful with everything around the renting process. The boat was in very good condition and was fun to sail.
Had an amazing weekend out on the great south bay. Very comfortable for the 4 of us for the whole weekend. Carl was great and everything went smooth and easily. Would definitely do this same trip again.
