Frequently Asked Questions

We’ve answered the most commonly asked questions to save you a google search.

Do I need a boating license/ certificate if I was born before 1973?

At Woodard Marine, we prioritize the safety and well-being of all our clients and staff. As part of our commitment to maintaining high standards of safety and responsibility, our company policy requires that every driver or renter of our boats, regardless of their birth year, must possess a valid boating license. This policy applies universally, including to those born before 1973.

Boating License

If you don't possess a boating license or safety certificate, rest assured, Woodard Marine has a solution in place for your convenience. Our policy mandates that all individuals above the age of 24, who intend to operate our boats, must complete an online safety boating course. Although the course guidelines may suggest that certain individuals are exempt due to age (often referred to as being "grandfathered in"), at Woodard Marine, we uphold a stringent standard for safety and proficiency. This means every prospective boat driver, regardless of age, is required to take this safety course.

To align with this policy, we kindly request you to select your state of residence and enroll in the online course. Successfully completing this course not only fulfills our company's safety requirements but also ensures you are well-prepared and knowledgeable about boating safety protocols. This step is crucial in maintaining the high standards of safety and responsibility we cherish at Woodard Marine.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in adhering to our safety policies. We look forward to providing you with an enjoyable and secure boating experience.

I see that the state regulations say that I am grandfathered in. Do I still need a boating license or safety certificate to rent a boat from Woodard Marine?

At Woodard Marine, we understand that state regulations might offer certain exemptions, such as being "grandfathered in," for individuals who have been boating prior to specific dates. This exemption typically applies to those operating their own boats. However, it's important to note that our company policies are distinct from state regulations in this regard.

As part of our commitment to safety and responsibility, our policy mandates that every renter, regardless of their age or experience, must possess a valid boating license or safety certificate to rent a boat from us. This ensures a uniform standard of safety and knowledge for all our clients, contributing to a secure and enjoyable boating experience.

Boating Licenses

For those who don’t have a boating license or safety certificate, we’ve got you covered. It is a requirement at Woodard Marine that anyone over the age of 24 wishing to operate one of our boats completes an online safety boating course. Even if the course indicates that you are exempted due to age or other factors (commonly referred to as being "grandfathered in"), our company policy overrides this exemption. We require all prospective drivers to undertake this safety course, emphasizing our dedication to upholding the highest standards of boating safety.

To comply with our policy, please select the state you reside in and enroll in the relevant online course. Completing this course is essential to meet our company's policy requirements and ensures that you are well-prepared to navigate the waters safely and responsibly.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in adhering to these safety measures.

Can rented boats travel to another lake other than Lake Bomoseen?

It is our policy that all boats rented from us must exclusively be used on Lake Bomoseen. This policy is in place to ensure the safety and maintenance of our fleet, as well as to comply with specific licensing and operational guidelines.

Lake Bomoseen offers a beautiful and diverse environment for boating, and we believe it provides an excellent setting for a variety of water activities. Our boats are specially chosen and maintained to suit the conditions of Lake Bomoseen, ensuring that you have a safe and enjoyable experience on the water.

We are committed to providing you with the best possible experience on Lake Bomoseen and look forward to assisting you with your boating adventure.

Are pets allowed on rental boats?

Regarding bringing pets aboard our rental boats at Woodard Marine. We completely understand how much joy and companionship pets bring, and that they are often considered part of the family. However, we have a policy in place where pets are not permitted on our boats. This decision is based on a couple of key considerations.

Firstly, the lack of suitable facilities on the boats for pets to relieve themselves presents a challenge. Additionally, we must consider the comfort and health of all our customers, including those who may have allergies to pet dander. Ensuring a comfortable and safe environment for everyone on board is a priority for us.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation with this policy. While we regret any inconvenience this may cause to you and your furry friend, we believe this policy is in the best interest of all our customers to ensure a pleasant and safe boating experience.
If you have any further questions or need assistance with planning your boating adventure, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. We are here to help you have an enjoyable and memorable experience on Lake Bomoseen.
