Great!! Great idea, there isn’t enough inexperienced idiots on Prior Lake already with their own boats! Let’s put inexperience people in rental boats out there too, I have an idea; why not expand your club to personal water craft because there aren’t enough of them either…

Great - Now these boats will go out on different lakes each day and spread invasive species(Eurasian Milfoil, Hydrilla, Zebra Mussels, Quagga Mussels, VHS Fish Virus, Spiny Water Flea, etc.) and ruin all of the beautiful Minnesota Lakes.

Some of the above invasives can survive for 30 days out of water........

Please! Clean your boat, motor, trailer, livewell, spray it off and help keep our lakes clean!!!!

Maybe these boat clubs can be held personally liable if they were found transporting invasives species......the liability would be unlimited because invasive species are IMPOSSIBLE to remove from a lake/river......

Looks like an industry in trouble! Off by 25%??? So in another three years at this pace it will not exist?

How about these cheap bums go out and buy a boat? Boating other than with a 14' Alumacraft and these guys have money to burn!

Two best days in your life:

2nd best the day you buy a boat

1st best the day you sell the boat.

Love the water--just don't have enough season in Minnesota to own a boat!!
