Glad to hear Alder Creek is taking care of you. There were some issues with their customer service over the last few years, as they came under new ownership/management, but I've had pretty good experiences with them.
That said, if you are going to buy gear on line and are looking for really good advice and customer service, I would suggest the Kayak Shed in Hood River (http://www.kayakshed.com/
) I'm not affiliated with them, but have purchased my last 3 boats from them and they also helped me (actually did all the work) getting a replacement boat from Jackson when mine cracked. John Hart is the owner and if you ask for him, he's always glad to help out/give advice/generally be a good guy and he stands behind the products he sells.
Just my two cents
