I know Coloradans aren't really big on Corran's designs for some reason,
Here are a couple reasons:
The Fish (or whatever that piece of crap is called) is designed for Lachene Wave. That boat sucks for everything else.
His designs target about 3% of the kayaking market. Of this 3%, maybe .005% live in CO. His designs have always been very aggressive, and the average paddler gets their asses kicked when they try them. An exact opposite example would be why Jackson Kayaks is so successful and Corran is not.
His advertisements target an audience that just might possibly not even exist. I mean how lame was that ad with him holding his Fishy boat standing next to a Ferrari. RE-TAR-DED!
Plus, why spend $1300 on a boat that isn't that good when you can get a boat that is way better for cheaper. But, hey, maybe this Thruster is a much better design than last years pieces of crap.
