We called last minute for a boat rental and they had a brand new 2017 20 ft pontoon boat available for the time I need to rent one. Smiths is one of the older marinas on the lake that has been in businesses as long as I can Remember. where else could you get a brand new boat to use on Lake George. I will recommend them to everyone I know.
Mike, who said he was the manager acted like a rude and insulting teenager when we ask if it was safe to travel back through a lightening storm. He refused to answer me and instead said that I had to come back when the time was up, and never bothered to ask of we were willing to spend the extra money on the time, which we were. And they had plenty of boats available. It was a slow day for them. He said, you are due back at 415. Goodbye. And hung up! I called back to explain I was not an experienced boater and could he please guide me through it and he continued his rude interrupting antics and when I explained that I would write a bad review on F.R. Smith and sons he made a baby voice and said "away, I'm gonna cry!" And then hung up again. I've never experienced such ride u professionalism in my life. Never again will they get my business and I advise you against it as well because I wish someone would have shared this with me before I gave them my business.

FR Smith boat rentals are a bunch of mercenaries who are out to relieve you of every dollar in your wallet.
I dented a propeller on my $450 a day rental and they charged me $260 to repair it??? They also charged $14 to repair a nick in the motor frame. Then, to add insult to injury they charge $3.79 a gallon to refill the tank.
Save your money and stay home!
