sailing in Jacksonville

Recently I took a trip to Jacksonville to visit my niece and nephew. While there we decided we needed to take a sail. Since the sale of my 320 Hunter, I had not been able to do any sailing, anywhere. So we called around and decided to rent a boat from "The Boat Club." I was interrogated by Captain Don as to my sailing credentials, I guess I pass. After this interrogation, I was a little off center and failed to inspect the boat we were to rent before money was paid. We were taken to a Catalina 25. Once boarded we were treated to the most ragged-out boat I have ever been aboard. Truly, I have never seen a boat that was in such poor shape. We sailed anyway, and made the best of a bad situation. Like I always have said. Anytime on the water is better than anytime on land. So, my question is: Since we will never rent there again, does anyone know where we can rent a "good" boat on my return trip.Thanks again for some info. I have enjoyed this forum for years.
