We understand sending an ID online can seem risky. However, GetMyBoat works with a 3rd party company (EVIDENT) to provide a safe way for our customers to submit their ID and selfie without the worry of identity theft. Please note Evident provides only a snapshot within their secure database and the approval of whether or not your ID and picture are valid and a match.
GetMyBoat requests ID for the same reasons you are asked to show an ID when boarding an airplane or booking a hotel room. We want to ensure we are getting the right people on the water while also ensuring the safety and security of the community including our watercraft owners and managers.
Please note in certain cases if we do not receive a valid ID, GetMyBoat may cancel a booking.
We hope this answer helps but if you have any other questions please don't hesitate to email us at email@example.com
