FAQ Page

Owning a boat can be a fun and relatively affordable, especially if you live in an area with a year-round boating season and you enjoy do-it-yourself projects involved with boat ownership – painting the bottom, for example, or changing the engine oil or waxing the boat.  However, if you live in New England, and your idea of summer fun is spending as much time as possible during our short boating season on the water with your family and friends, then Rex Boating Club membership may be the answer. In fact, a Rex Boating Club membership will provide you with the opportunity to spend just as much time on the water as a boat owner at about one-third  the cost of the premium-brand boat you’ll be using. That said, we’re proud that so many RBC members have become boat owners the RBC is a great path to ownership.

In the real world of New England boating, most active boat owners get on the water 10 to 20 days a season Take a look at the RBC website cost comparison of one year of boat ownership versus one year of RBC membership and you’ll quickly see the membership advantage. If you’ve never owned a boat, RBC membership will enable you to get a realistic idea of how boating fits into your family’s life, before you make major investment.  Alternatively, if you currently own a boat and are thinking of giving it up because of the expense or infrequent use, RBC membership is a great way to lower the cost of your time on the water.

Are memberships limited in number?

Yes. We are limiting membership in order to maintain a ratio of members to boats that will assure that you have plenty of opportunity to use all of the boating days  your membership provides– and even more as your spring and fall schedule permits, during the RBC “nearly limitless” “off-peak” season.

What membership plans are available?

Membership plans and their associated number of Peak Season uses – Memorial Day weekend thru early September — are shown in our brochure.  Note that on a weekday – Monday through Friday – use can be the entire day, which demand usually allows.  Each Peak Season weekend day – Saturday and Sunday/Holiday – is divided into two sessions, one begins in the morning, the other mid-afternoon. Uses are charged to the Skipper Flotilla plan only during the Peak Summer Season.  Off- Peak Season uses are FREE, except for Per Diem plan members.  A membership may have two reservations at any one time, with one reserved use per weekend, and a second use the same weekend if desired subject to our Standby policy. Note: All memberships include one Safe Boating Certificate class, SeaTow on-water assistance plan, and our comprehensive private,  on-water orientation with a USCG licensed captain.

Who may operate the boat?

Any person at least 25 years old is eligible to become an RBC member and authorized operator to take a boat out as “captain.” The RBC makes it easy to get your lifetime SBC with a one-day SBC class through local providers. Out-of-state Safe Boating certificates are transferable, too.

While most members pay in full before boating begins by the start of each boating season, we do offer a payment plan. Memberships run April 15 thru October 15. There is a 2% discount if you pay for your membership by check, and we also accept MasterCard, Visa, and American Express. You can reserve your membership NOW with a refundable $500 Deposit. CT sales tax and fuel is additional.

Of course you can, so long as you plan ahead a few days. Like reservations for court times (tennis) or tee times (golf), the earlier you reserve the more likely you are to get the day and time you want. RBC limits members to one reservation per Peak Season weekend, and the boating times on Saturday and Sunday begin with a choice of  an Am or PM  5-hour session. If you want to go out on both weekend days, we do allow you to make a Standby reservation for the 2nd use. RBC limits the number and types of memberships each season to assure that all members have plenty of opportunity to make the most of their memberships. Experience has shown that scheduling within 7 days ( and often less) of the desired weekend use date is successful, and we often can say ‘yes’ even for requests made on a peak-season weekend day! Weekdays are never a problem and allow up to 11 hours on the water per weekday.

99% of scheduling is done through the Rex Boating Club on-line reservation system, Schedule Master. Each membership may have two reservations on the books up to two weeks in advance including one reservation per weekend. Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and Labor Day are considered weekend time. Only Peak-season uses, those  between Memorial Day weekend and early September diminish your Skipper Flotilla plan use count .

You only pay for the fuel you use. You will receive an itemized statement listing your charges. CT sales tax does apply to membership cost.

Nothing! Included in your membership is a safe boating course to earn your lifetime SBC, an easy quiz for anyone. Then, your membership includes a comprehensive, private, on-the-water orientation, where you can learn and demonstrate your new your skills with a USCG-licensed RBC training captain.
