For each rental, you will be presented with a Pre/Post Inspection Form, also known as the Check In, Check Out (CICO) Form. You can find your CICO form once your booking is approved and you have received your itinerary. On the itinerary, you will see a link that takes you to the form where you can print it out and bring on the day of the rental.
Be sure to complete this form when the renter's depart with the boat and also when the boat is returned. You will walk the exterior of the boat with the renter, then sign off on any damage to the boat present before the rental and any equipment that is borrowed. When the rental comes back, you will walk the exterior of the boat again and document that there is no new damage and that all borrowed equipment has been returned.
Please submit these back to Boatsetter, only if there are additional charges authorized on the form, like fuel or gratuity, or if there is any damage to the boat. You can submit those to our support email, which is email@example.com.
Why do we need to complete a CICO Form? For both legal and insurance reasons. Boatsetter boat rentals are covered by world-class insurance, but this coverage requires a fully and accurately-completed CICO form. Coast Guard regulations also require that a check out orientation take place.
Can someone else handle the Check In, Check Out Process (CICO) for me?
Yes! A great way to streamline the boat rental Check In, Check Out (CICO) process is to “designate an agent.” which could be a captain, your neighbor, or a relative. By completing and sending in a simple form, you authorize someone else to represent you at the start/completion of the boat rental. This person will need to complete a Designated Agent Form in order to complete and sign the Check In, Check Out (CICO) Form. Here’s how it works:
- Submit the agent's contact information and your written consent with your signature to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Your Designated Agent (or you) must bring the CICO to the boat rental location before the time the boat rental sets sail.
- Do a pre-rental walk around - Review and note on the form: the fuel level, condition, and equipment of the boat making sure everything is operational. Note any pre-existing damage. (Sign)
- Do a post-rental walk around - Repeat the process from the start of the rental, noting any new damages if applicable and any charges. (Sign)
- Note any added costs. Mark fuel levels. Note anything that will be deducted from the renters’ security deposit (fuel, captain’s tip etc).
