    2010 Cobalt 200s open bow for Rent on Lake Washington

    We had a great time on James boat this weekend! We had a group of 7 adults which was very comfortable for us, and everyone managed to have a seat. I think any more than that would have been a little to crammed. James was responsive, communicative and flexible with our changing plans. So James, thank you!!

    Such a smooth experience from start to finish. We were given safety instructions and everything we needed to have a really fun outing on the lake. Definitely leave extra time to find parking as it's a busy marina!
