I was not given information on how to contact the launch service at BHSC. When I got to Rowes Wharf there was no one available to tell us. I texted the person (Adam) who scheduled the boat for me. He was about to board a flight but luckily I caught him in time for him to let me know what to do. I suggest you provide this information on your website.
There were numerous small problems with the boat (a broken fitting on the mast caused the halyard to snag, the key mechanism is so weather-worn that it was difficult getting the engine started, there were no instructions on where to find the fuel gauge) but we were able to work around them. In addition there was trash left in various places by the previous renters that hadn't been cleaned up.

Very nice & helpful folks. Moorings in good shape. Good location. Only one with a launch service. It ain’t a yacht club launch , but it gets the job done and runs 9a-9p

The BHSC needs to let folks know they are no longer connected to Rowes Wharf. No showers. Rest rooms or laundry. Drop off is at the Aquarium dock - climb up tires- or Barking Crab - walk thru there trash area. The launch is great and Eric was really helpful showing us the public docks at Barking Crab where we were able to lock the dinghy to stay out later than 9pm when the launch stops. Launches could use some TLC….. Moorings are really centrally located and convenient for exploring Boston ….

The location is wonderful, but the facilities are poor. The mooring lines were so badly frayed that I was concerned for the safety of the boat. The launch was ancient, and did not operate according to the posted schedule. It was difficult to get into and out of and. It was necessary to climb on old mounted tires to get onto the dock.
Thank your feedback with us. We greatly appreciate your honest review and are glad to hear that you found our location wonderful. However, we apologize for the inconvenience you experienced regarding the facilities during your visit. Your safety and satisfaction are our top priorities, and we take your concerns very seriously.
Beginning in the fall, there will be new owners and managers of the club. We have already begun addressing the issues you mentioned. Our mooring lines are being replaced to ensure the safety of all boats and guests. Additionally, we are working on improving both our club and our launch boats. As for not operating on the posted schedule, the launch driver was unfortunately working on an engine when you called for him so he didn't hear his radio. When you called the office line, the club manager texted the launch driver and he headed right over. We do apologize for any inconvenience there.
Regarding the access to the dock, unfortunately that's the public dock used for the ferry and water taxi. If the step down was difficult for you, we recommend calling the launch from the Barking Crab Marina next time where the dock rises with the tides.
We are committed to providing our guests with the best possible experience, and your feedback helps us identify areas where we can improve.
Thank you once again for bringing these matters to our attention. We look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back and provide you with a more enjoyable and memorable experience.

Great location and price. Launch service very easy and convenient. I would say make sure you have cash, it’s an hourly rate and not sure how you would pay without dealing with launch driver directly.

Amazing location with wonderful views of the city. Launch is included and the drivers were unfailingly courteous and helpful. We’ve been cruising for just a few months but this is absolutely my favorite mooring! Reasonable rates and great access to everything. Close enough to the New England Aquarium to hear the sea lions barking… Thanks for being such great hosts!
Thanks for such kind words, Redfish. We enjoyed having you and hope you'll come again. See you next summer. - Julia, Eric, Alex and Arial.

Wonderful time with Boston Harbor Sailing Club. Mooring was excellent, beautiful views in all directions. Launch service was the highlight—all 3 launch captains made us feel quite at home. Best we’ve had since Maryland (big surprise for the big city!). Thank you, we will look forward to coming back.
Thanks for you lovely review. We enjoyed your visit and hope you will visit again. See you next year. Happy Sailing!
