Take this with a grain of salt, but I ran into a guy who was in a swift water training on Clear Creek. He said he was from Ohio, and he heard that Fluid had either purchased or leased a rotomolding factory in some town in Ohio, and they were planning on manufacturing boats there next year. Have no idea if that's true.

@ El Flaco, to squash that rumor, I have been in touch with Shane Raw who works at Fluid and he said the following:

"We have a warehouse in Ohio for distribution of online sales but that one is in the process of being shut down. That will leave only the one in Maryland.... All production will be in SA from this moment forward."

@ Pizzle: the reason for the issues in the past was due to moving production from South Africa to the States and UK. Now that it is back in SA and they have the likes of Shane Raw on the team, quality control will be better.
