the key things you'll want to know

We'll send you a formal BEACH BAGS Anchor Usage Agreement for review and signature after you book your reservation. Here's a quick review of the basics.


Captain's Responsibilities

As Captain of your boat you acknowledge ultimate responsibility, under the law, for all aspects of operation including the safe navigation of the ship, anchoring, as well as training and actions of your crew.

Knowledge of houseboating, and the weather patterns on Lake Powell are  essential for successfully using any anchoring system.

Understanding correct anchor placement and installation is critical for your safety and houseboating enjoyment. A signature of acceptance verifying you have viewed and understand the following materials, and have properly trained your crew, is required by all Captains.
What's included

We offer various rental equipment and services. All include training and instruction in proper equipment use.

Pick-Up / Delivery Location

We're operating out of Antelope Point Marina for the 2022 season and will designate a location at the marina for pick-up and return of equipment once your reservation is confirmed. If our APM location isn't good for you, please let us know and we'll do our best to arrange an alternate location. 

Rental pick-up/delivery process

Our goal is to send you off with as much in-person information as you desire about how your System works and how it was conceived, designed and developed. If you want to go beyond the basics, it's no problem, just ask away. If, however, you find yourself short on time during the pick-up/delivery process, rest assured we've got you covered there too - all of our instructional materials are available on-line. 

Tank's full – no need to refuel 

If you're using a DIY System, your portable, gas-powered pump will arrive with a full tank of fuel. There is no need to refuel it prior to return.

return time

If you're using a DIY System it must be returned by 5:30 pm on date specified and the location of which you took delivery unless otherwise arranged with our crew.

Damage security deposit

We require a damage deposit of $500 which is due when we charge your credit card for the System rental (at least 30 prior to your departure). This deposit is refunded providing you return the gear complete and without neglect (other than normal wear or weather damage). 

Cancellation policy

We understand that plans can change and unforeseen circumstances can prevent you from sailing or using your houseboat. And we've developed a cancellation policy with just those things in mind.
