That new location just across the alley from Cabana’s will make it much easier for Joe’s customers who are renting scooters, Surrey bikes, tandem and bullet bikes and more. His scooters are getting more than 80-miles to the gallon, and those Surrey bikes are proving so popular he’s adding another one into the stable this summer, so you can choose from a single bench deluxe or a double bench limo surrey for a unique and colorful way to get around town. But, wait…there’s more! Moving about the landscape of the region is just one way to have fun. Joe wants to make sure you can move around on the waterways of the area, too. He will be offering American Boat Club rentals at his new location as well for those looking to rent a boat or a Jet Ski. The American Boat Club that opened last July will be ready to go this season from the docks at Harbor Isle Marina. You can sign up for pontoon boats, run-abouts, Jet Skis and more on the open water this summer. You can rent most of Joe’s prod-ucts for as little as an hour all the way up to a full week.
