The place is named for a dog... probably a bad dog. Within five minutes of taking their center console boat out towards Sombrero Key, the canopy blew down and needed to be repaired. Fortunately, I had a Leatherman tool with me and after about half an hour was able to cobble it back together and it stayed up for the rest of the day. On returning to the marina that afternoon, I told the guy about the problem and showed him the repair job. I asked if we'd get compensation for the time we spent fixing their boat. He grumbled something, that sounded like "ok". But, when we got back home, they'd charged the full amount to the credit card. The boat rental fee was no bargain either; and their fuel charges are *very* high - expect to pay twice the going rate. We took a day cruise the following week and it was a lot more fun... and way cheaper. Well, you live and you learn.
