How complicated is this? And the biggie: who would take care of this fish if we went to visit with the grandparents for a few days?

Everybody has needed or wanted access to a boat or a pickup truck every now and then, but most people don’t need to own them. Companies like Boatbound and GoShare give people easy access to those items when they need it.
