Boating is inherently dangerous, and as the Renter you recognize and acknowledge that there are certain risks associated with boating and use of the vessels and you assume full responsibility for personal injury to yourself and for any minor children and or guests in your custody, care, and control, and you further release and discharge Smith Mountain Boat Rentals for any injury, damage or loss arising out of the use of the vessels, whether caused by the fault of yourself, your passengers, Smith Mountain Boat Rentals, or other third parties.
Smith Mountain Boat Rentals will provide all of your proper safety gear for your vessel.
