General Conditions of Hire:
The person responsible for the hire of the craft must present a current car or boat license, and must be at least 18 years of age.
Instructions will be given in handling the craft.
The number of people on board must not exceed survey permit, by Maritime Regulations.
Crews of ‘all male’ or ‘all female’ passengers are not permitted.
The boat must not be driven at night.
No pets, firearms, axes, trail bikes or fuel in containers.
The Owner reserves the right to refuse any person or persons the use of the craft.
The hirer accepts responsibility for the safety and care of the houseboat including fittings, fixtures and accessories.
The houseboat is insured, however and excess of $500 (River Wren) is levied on each insurance claim made. Separate accidents are treated by the insurer as separate claims: charges made for insurance excesses are therefore cumulative and are the responsibility of the hirer. Provided the conditions of the hire agreement are fulfilled and subject to the insurance company’s assessment, the limit of the hirer’s liability is the insurance excess.
