SaturnRafts Busted Spoofing

SaturnRaft is busted spoofing on on the BUZZ as a satisfied customer:

He wrote in a post three weeks ago:

"No spoofing here, just straightforward promotion."

If you have to go to those lengths to sell a boat. They must not be "can't miss opportunity"

Especially in this economy where people are looking to save a couple of bucks.

This is some seriously funny stuff.

You gotta give the guy an A for effort.

Good detective work!

The Bell Is Already Rung

We'll never know to what extent the owner of SaturnRafts has manipulated the content in threads, posts, and other forums on Saturn Rafts. Unfortunately, his manipulated reviews are still on the internet and being read by unknowing consumers through Yahoo/Google search engines and many of the threads on this site. Convincing unknowing consumer to call SaturnRafts and drop down some bills. They'll never know that they've been manipulated, unless they stumble onto these couple threads. Yes, he'll probably still get some sales for his "effort"!

That latest attempt has really turned me off of their company on a major trust issue. I am looking at buying my 1st new/used raft and was really eyeing their product because of the extremely low cost. Not a whole lot more than a new kayak price. I was figuring I could get a low end raft to try out and if rafting turned out to not be my cup of tee I would only be out a little bit of money after dumping the boat at a lower price. ANd if I happened to get 4 or 5 years of lightservice out of it I would be in a good position versus the original cost. Now I am back to looking at the used market, but damn it seems people are way proud of old rubber.

That is exactly what I was thinking when I went raft shopping this year. I bought a used Sotar for $1300 (rubber only).

Once I fix it up I'm going to have a boat that is going to last me 20 years... for about what I'd pay for a few kayaks that would be obsolete or shattered after 2 or 3 seasons.

What kills you on the rafts is outfitting them. I just spend about $50 on PFDs for my two chihuahuas. Now I have to find little wetsuits for them and then I have to rig a non-slip platform for them... it never ends.

You can buy sweet Sevlor rafts at Wal-mart too, but the oars are only like 4 feet long.

So true, and it only gets worse, not better... Nice purchase on the used Sotar!

That bozo saturn even tries this on other forums, it's kind of like the creepy person that won't quit calling to go boating.

Be Patient and Take it Slow (if you can)...

It's really fun to outfit your boat just the way you want it with accessories but trust me take it slow, a little bit every season to avoid the wallet shock of the cost...I've had my wife take my credit cards away from me so I don't shop for new rigging supplies after every paycheck I receive!

It's fun, expensive, and well worth all of it...
