Pontoon Rental FAQs
What is your cancellation policy?
Reservations MUST BE cancelled 48 hours prior to the rental reservation start time to receive a refund. NO REFUNDS will be issued for cancellations within 48 hours of the rental reservation start time. In the case of rain at the reservation start time, or a severe weather warning that includes Prior Lake, you will be able to re-book the rental for another time (within 365 days). Knotty Oar Marina reserves the right to cancel reservations at any time for weather related concerns, and you would be able to re-book the rental for another time (within 365 days). In no case will a refund be issued due to weather.
