Local couple rebrands boat rental business on Bald Eagle Lake
10 Feb 2021
After 20 years, a boat rental business is under new ownership.
White Bear Township couple Ben and Katy Robinson closed on the sale of Bald Eagle Boat Rental from previous owner Marty Weber earlier this year. The seasonal boat rental business, located at 4444 129th St. in Hugo, has been located on the property for decades but has had a few different owners.
Weber put the business up for sale after 20 years of operation. Before Weber, the business was known as Bobber’s for 10 years and, before that, the Lakeview Inn for several years.
“After my 20 years of operation, it is my turn to push this business forward to a younger generation,” Weber wrote in a recent post on social media. Weber unexpectedly passed away Jan. 29 at the age of 63. (See his obituary on page 5 or online at presspubs.com.)
The Robinsons said Weber had been very involved with the transition and planned to be around this summer to help. “He was out here weekly, almost daily,” Katy said.
