Thank you Shane.
This thread was meant sincerely based on some reports from local Boise boaters and Idaho River Sports. I would maybe also contact them and let them know nothing has changed... as I got some feedback from them that there were some issues reported about the Remix.
My guess is that, for whatever reason, one or two boaters had a negative experience, sold their new Remixes, told some people, and it kind of blew up. These certainly aren't newbies or miscreants, either, but well respected, quite reputable long time paddlers of the Remix.
Myself... I've been debating the Remix in my new boat purchase and these reports locally had me concerned, so I was just trying to get feedback from other boaters.
I appreciate the response.
