What's better than having a boat? Having a friend that has a boat! They pay to maintain and store it but you can weasel your way out onto the water with them. The only problem with that scenario is for the most part you probably can't ditch the friend and just take their boat. So I guess an ever better answer to the question of what's better than having a boat - is a service that'll let you rent somebody's boat for the day.

Of course, you can rent people's houses when you're looking for a place to stay while away from home. And we just recently told you about a new service that lets you rent swimming pools in people's backyards. Did you know there's an app (or website) where you can find a local boat to rent? It's conveniently titled Get My Boat and it's not exactly a brand new company - it's been around for almost 10 years. It's about as easy as it sounds.....you search your location for a boat and you're matched with owners that are looking to rent one out.

How great is that? Well, mostly great. There isn't a lot of options around Missoula. And the ones that are available using the service aren't exactly cheap. Just doing a quick check I see three options pop up - a day of guided fly fishing on a 2-person boat, a Stingray that holds 8 people, and a bass boat that'll hold 12 people. The cheapest option will still cost you $465 for the day.

There's isn't a lot to choose from for Missoula right now. But maybe word of mouth will catch on and more people will start using the service. It seems like a great way for people to make some extra money if they don't use their boat often - and a handy way for others to get out on the water without the hassle of having their own boat.
