Everything said for the past several posts are true. Just happened now in 2013. Don't rent from them not worth the risk. Find a company that cares.

Unfortunately, all the negative comments already mentioned about SK Watercraft Rentals are true. A rating of disappointing is really not accurate. Something like, "should be tar and feathered" would be more appropriate. We have rented watercraft before. We used these machines in the same manner and location. When we returned the machines SK claimed there was damage. They looked under the machines with a flashlight and said that when we took the machines they were rated at an A- and now they were a B-. We requested information from the previous rental and found that a different employee had rated the same machines a B+. We spoke with other local NW dealers and discovered that SK's system is completely arbitrary and fraudulent. They filled out the receipt in my name and submitted it to our card company for payment. My attorney's advised me that I'm not batman and that this fight isn't worth the money. However, I can warn you. Don't rent from SK, Don't sign anything. This is a scam.

THEY WILL TAKE UR MONEY! -
THIS COMPANY IS OWNED AND OPERATED BY UNPROFESSIONAL FRATERNITY BOYS. IF YOU WANT TO SAVE YOUR MONEY, DO NOT RENT FROM HERE. THIS PLACE WILL RENT OUT THEIR EQUIPMENT AND CHARGE YOUR DEBIT AND CREDIT CARD MONTHS LATER. THIS PLACE WAITS UNTILL THEIR OFF-PEAK SEASON IS AND WILL TAKE YOUR MONEY. THIS SCAM HAPPENS TO OUT OF TOWN FOLKS, SO BE CAREFULLY! THIS COMPANY KNOWS THAT HIRING A SMALL CLAIMS ATTORNEY IS GOING TO COST YOU ABOUT $2,000 MIN AND THEY KNOW THAT YOU ARE NOT GOING TO HAVE THE TIME AND MONEY TO FLY BACK DOWN AND DISPUTE IT W/ THEM SO THEY KNOW THAT THEY WILL WIN THE CASE THAT IS WHY THEY TARGET THE FOREIGNERS! SO BE CAREFUL AND BE AWARE. EVERYONE SHOULD WRITE A REVIEW TO HELP OUT OUR FELLOWERS.These boys will comE UP WITH ANY EXCUSE TO TAKE UR MONEY SUCH AS THE PROPELLER SCEME, SCRATCHES ON THE JET SKI'S ETC. THIS IS WHY WE PUT 1,000 DOWN DEPOSIT RIGHT?! WRONGG!!! THEY WILL GIVE YOU BACK UR DEPOSIT THINKING EVERYTHING IS FINE AND YOU GO ON UR MERRY WAY AND BAM! THREE-6 MONTHS

I rented a Sea Doo PWC, and when I returned it was told I caused "stress fractures", which were barely visible lines in the coating. My partner and I followed every rule and direction given to us, which were a lot. We did not beach or crash, or otherwise dock the craft in a manner that would cause damage. Doing research on this company, this is their MO- rent watercrafts, make up damage, and send to "their" shop for repair, then you get the bill. They ruined my birthday present to my boyfriend, and they will ruin your outing too. The bill I got is only for $127, but I have seen complaints with amounts over $2,000. Please do not rent from them, they need to be shut down. If this can happen to someone who follows every rule and uses the equipment as directed, it can happen to anyone who rents from them. If you have had a similar experience, e-mail me at seattle_brock@yahoo, as I intend to make sure this does not happen to other customers.
