The GetMyBoat boat rental app claims to be “the Airbnb of boats” – Waterbnb? – during the next Labor Day weekend.

With watercraft available in Orlando and across Florida, virtual boat rentals are an idea whose time has seemingly come in an age of contactless transactions and people wanting to get out of their homes and as far away from others as possible.

Users of the app can either charter a boat – and we’re seeing a nice pontoon currently up for grabs locally – or hire their own boat.

If you are prone to seasickness or if you are not a swimmer, there is also the “Airbnb for campers”, Outdoorsy, who will do their best to make your Airstream dreams come true. Quick browsing through local listings features monstrous RVs and cuter little teardrop trailers.

What time to live …
