i don't see how you can claim that. I have a great raft in there for only $900 and a tributary 16 footer that is only 6 months old for $2850. those are very good prices, and no one can deny that. The DRE 14 footer has only been used twice and it's discounted more than it should be. Maybe wait till you actually know something about the gear before posting some negative response. If you don't think it's a good deal, don't buy it. There is no reason to reply the way you did just because your opinion is different.
