I recently came across a local ad from a guy wanting to rent a ski boat for him and his family for a 7 day vacation on a private lake that they have rented (lake is about an hour from my place) for the last week of July. Being curious and thinking that I could spare a week, help out a family in need, and the $$$ would definitely help me, I answered the ad cautiously. E-mails back and forth have been positive, and he has been very open with details as have I.
I have not done anything like this before, but had a situation last year with a friend using my boat for a couple of days, so I already have the insurance coverage issues figured out with my agent. What I don't have is the legal verbage/documents that when signed, I would feel comfortable with to let a stranger take my boat out without me being with it.
This guy does not sound like a scammer, he has not been e-mailing me non stop with bad grammer and "I'll give you a check and you give me the leftover $$" stuff. After I offered, he wants to come by and see my boat and talk with me and the wife when it's convienent for me and work on details. I have always been a giver, and look at this as being a win/win situation for both parties.
Has anyone on this board done this, or does anyone have any advise that might help to make this work for both parties to come out happy? Thanks for any and all advise.
