Rules and Guidelines

We advise reservations for boat and motor rentals. Please note the following:

  • The maximum passenger capacity allowed for all rental boats is (5) five persons.
  • Due to rapidly changing weather conditions, boats will not be used for taking numerous loads of passengers to and from the clam beds. Boats will be allowed (2) two trips to taking passengers out and back for clamming or picnicking.
  • Tractor launch expires at 4:45 PM. Rental boats must be returned by 4:45 PM.
  • All boat or boat and motor reservations will require a full deposit for every day of the week with low tides or without low tides. We are also now requiring a $300.00 (credit card accepted) rental deposit at the time you pick-up rentals. Deposits will not be refunded for rentals that are not picked up at the time requested by renter.
  • The equipment must be checked out by renter, with our assistance, to establish that everything is in good working order prior to use. The rental equipment must be returned in the same condition in order for the deposit to be returned to customer.
  • Any renter found in non-compliance with these rules will face immediate forfeiture of the vessel. These rules are for you and your passengers' safety.
Boathouse and Outboard Shop
The Boathouse sells bait, tackle, weights, a full line of marine parts and accessories, oil, ice, wood, soft drinks, snacks and candy.

Lawson's Landing Outboard shop has three factory certified mechanics for repairs and sales of Evinrude and Johnson outboards. We have a good inventory of parts and can usually order any parts we do not have. We are equipped to repair the E-TEC engines.

All new outboards sold in California are smog legal. Evinrude outboards meet or exceed the 2006 EPA standards which means that all Evinrude 2-stroke engines are able to be used in the most restricted waters in the state. (The TRPA enforces Lake Tahoe's strict emissions rules in a boat powered by an Evinrude.) Call to see if we can get you an EPA and CARB approved motor on your boat for a good price.
