    Fantastic service. Only complain, our family of 4 eating out across the river must add $92.00 for literally just a few minutes on the water roundtrip. I could be way off in my comments since I don’t own a boat nor pay for insurance, so I have no idea about the expense that comes along with operating a service like this. Perhaps that’s the problem here, expensive insurance, but I will say that I would use this service more regularly to eat out on the Rondout with family and friends if it was more reasonably priced. I’m confident I’m not alone in my sentiment. The restaurants who profit from this service might be best at offsetting this expense, if they aren’t already. Best luck.
