Joe’s Rent-­A-­Boat has been on the Green Pleasure Pier on Catalina Island for the last 90 years. The current owner, “Jay” Guion, took it over from his father who worked there till he was 93, and his son, “Jay Jay” is already an important part of the business. Jay loves his work and the customers who come to visit the island and and it shows.
