You've heard people say that you don't need to buy a boat, you just need a friend with a boat.  Well, now you've got friends all over the place with boats to rent.

There are a couple different ways you can do it.  You may have seen that Carefree Boat Club of Buffalo will offer you an opportunity to rent a boat from their fleet here in Buffalo.

The call it the AirBnB for boats.

But what if you wanted to travel across the state to Rochester or somewhere in the Finger Lakes?  If you've got a cabin in the Adirondaks and have always dreamed about buying a boat to use for a couple days, there's another option that you might want to check out.

How does it work?

It's the same idea as an AirBnB that you would rent anywhere else in the country, only this is for boats.  It's called GetMyBoat.com and it works all over the world.  If you're looking to rent a boat, jet skis, yacht, pontoon boats or even find a fishing charter, you just go to the website, type in the zip code or town/city name that you're visiting and see what they've got.  Here's how it works.

Do I need to know how to drive a boat?

You can either do a "drive it yourself" if you know what you're doing in a boat, or you can get a captained experience if you want a boat that comes with someone who knows how to drive it.

Maybe you just want to rent something for a weekend to go fishing on Lake Ontario, maybe it's something a lot fancier on a yacht in Miami.

This will give you access to boats all over the world without having to haul your own or worry about maintaining your own!
