*Consumer Comment: Totally True
*Author of original report: Not A Competitor!
*UPDATE Employee: False Claims
You basically give "Freedom" free reign on your credit card if any "incidents" occur. An "incident" can be anything they feel necessary even if no damage is done. They use this as an opportunity to refurbish their boats with your money. As per the contract they also can relate any future repairs back to your "incident." Also, you are unable to dispute anything the choose to charge to your card. If you want to dispute anything you have to go to court, and with that you are automatically kicked out of the club and if for any reason you lose the case you have to pay their attorney fees. As my attorney explained it, "every time you take a boat out you are rolling the dice with giving them all of the rights to your credit card."
Aside from this, boats are never available, they are beat up, and they rarely let you go fishing saying that its too choppy. It sounds too good to be true when you meet with them and after signing you find that thats because you didnt get the truth and you made a bad decision.
I've heard great things about the other clubs but everyone says, and I can also agree that the owner of the Miami/Ft Lauderdale Franchise is a CROOK!!!!
