Am I way off base here wanting a return?
Not off base. Read rock solid guarantee. Doesnt sound like misuse or abuse. Its a new material marketed as lightweight abrasion and puncture resistant If they are gonna have this happen frequently then they either need to pull it from the market or buck up to it
Id be curious did it float a lot lower without the floor?
Fyi NRS stopped selling Aire Rafts (other than Puma line) probably so they can sell more of the Revolution. Profit margins must be higher so they should easily be able to pay for this
I'm a big fan of aire Aire has a no fault warrantee - you can use one of their boats as a tow strap and if it tears they will repair it
I now own three of their boats despite the fact that they dont produce their boats China. Instead the make them in some fucking hillbilly third world country called Idaho
Let the rest of us Buzzards know how this gets resolved.
