    Yeah, I wouldn't rent anything there. My cousin wanted to rent a jetski or boat, and the lady wanted a $700 deposit on the jet ski, and a $3,000 deposit on the boat. We didn't even have that much money.

    I don't see how this was your fault, but when you rent something and it breaks, you are held responsible, and there is always a risk. That's why I limit my rentals to bicycles, and kayaks.
