Hey there! Glad you're here to ride our weiners. No, seriously. Our boats are named after our weiner dogs - Cocoa, Moxie, Jack, & Mabrie. You'll get to know them later on. For the meantime, nice to meet you! Our names are Jamie and Dawn Reid and we are the owners of Lake of Egypt Pontoon Rentals aka Weiner Rides.
Weiner Rides was founded in 2021.
*Thank you Southern Illinois Outdoors and Marion Subaru for featuring us in this video!*
Moxie is part of the inspiration for the name of our first pontoon boat Cocoa Azul. "Azul" is Blue in Spanish. Moxie has a blue eye hence her name Moxie Blue. She is the skipper of our fleet and helped Cocoa command the Cocoa Azul and is now showing Jack they ways of the lake.
Jack was our first rescue that came all the way from Gardendale TX. As you can see, Jack has a condition called Vitiligo. He was black and tan as a pup and quickly changed colors. He is now our Captain! He took right away to his role. With Moxie to guide him, our fleet runs smoothly.
Mabrie came to us a few years ago and has earned her hand as our 2nd mate. She took right away to her role and can always be seen with her tail wagging non stop.
Cocoa was the inspiration for the name of our first pontoon boat Cocoa Azul. She loved going out on the pontoon boat and was our original Captain. She retired her role when she passed away at 14 years old in August 2016. She was able to enjoy her maiden ship for the summer.
