Default Boat rental in Tampa, Fl area?

I am heading to orlando on vacation in May and my girlfriend and I would like to rent a boat for a day in the Tampa Area. I tried the search engines to find websites on places that rent boats in TB but was mostly unsuccessful. We are looking to rent a 17-20' bowrider or center console. We will just be using it to cruise the bay area, we won't be fishing. Anyone know of any sites or have a phone number for reputable places in the TB area? I know most of you own boats and don't rent, but I thought I'd give it a shot.

Thank you.

If you want to go a little further south, Cannon's Marina (on Longboat Key - the Sarasota area), rents both Scouts and Grady Whites. You may want to check their website: http://www.cannonsmarina.com

Thank you for your recomendations. I have been finding a lot of boat rental places in Tierre Verde, Ft Myers and Naples, but thats about 2.5 hours south of orlando. A bit of a drive. I really appreciate the suggestions though.

Thank you.

Tierra Verde is really in St Pete (Beach), which is just across the bay from Tampa...not trying to be a smart a**...I found a listing on Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber of Commerce...http://tampabaybeaches.com/...under recreation, water sports.
Good luck, and enjoy FL!
