By all appearances, you joined solely to complain about CWI, not research various companies and products as you state above. Furthermore, you have never posted about anything other than your saga with CWI. Not once have you posted with info about a stretch of river, asking for information on products, or anything else. You and High-Side and others like you were not part of this online community before coming on MB solely to complain about CWI. It's good to know we should avoid this manufacturer, however your warnings appear to be more as if you're using MB strictly for a vendetta against CWI than out of concern for others.
Respectfully, Andy I believe I joined under another name back in 2010 - 2011 not sure of the date. Unfortunately my computer crashed and I lost everything and I changed my e-mail also so I could not retrieve anything. And is possible I could be wrong maybe ( big) anyway it is pointless as you had no idea so your assumptions where based on facts you had.
Here is another fact-I did much searching about Canyon here and elsewhere. and I had a conversation sticking up for CWI on another board (washingtonflyfishing) because the other gentleman had some confusion with a company in Idaho of all places. Here is a copy of that cconversation :
Is there more than one Canyon inflatables? This one is in Idaho apparently or maybe moved? It is quite possible you bought a cheap Chinese pontoon and they just finished it there??? Like put chafe strips on?
As someone who is seriosly thinking of dealing with www.*****************.com
also Canyon Whitewater Inflatables I have done a little research.
I would think if you used a little due diligence before posting such a negative post you would find that the link referenced to DOES NOT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH CANYON INFLATABLES / CANYON WHITEWATER INFLATABLES. In fact look up Canyon Inflatables LLC see where it leads / call that number and you will find a very different company. Is it possible one company fronting for another? Again RESEARCH ! I cannot see the reason for anyone making such implications in today's economy. Is there possibly an ulterior motive. As we are all adults read into that as you may. Ok I've had my say - probably not the best first post. I will try to do better.

Well sorry to have to update my post to the following:
Well after being jerked around for two years I have to warn / inform the following:
I filed a complaint with Oregon AG which was no help as it seems they need a minimum of 3 -6 complaints before taking any action. Correction Oregon Secretary of State
Filed small claims action and Coos County Sherriff cannot serve them as there address on file ( PRINCIPAL PLACE OF BUSINESS 1212 MEMORY LN , COOS BAY OR 97420 with Oregon Secretary of State Corporate Division does not exist.
If anyone is thinking of entering into a contract I HIGHLY recommend adding the following to your contract.
If buyer or seller defaults all Attorney fees to enforce said contract shall be paid by the defaulting party.
Get a firm delivery date in writing.
Actually pay a visit to manufacturing location or verify it by county records ect.
Deposit of no more than 20 percent down. (why tie up your money? )
And lastly keep detailed records of ALL e-mails ect to verify your claims. I have 80 + pages to dispute all ridiculous assertions made and now I am playing the catch me if you can game. Oh well what was it John Paul Jones so famously said.
FYI - I am from Idaho, almost 60 and due to Girlfriends cancer and treatments I allowed yes allowed this to go on for too long but I hope to save anyone else from my mistakes. The last straw - I was to pick up everything last summer while we were in Oregon. We (girlfriend and I) spent two weeks celebrating her recovery and while there I get called and told nothings ready sorry. A month later I asked this question - if the tubes ect where being worked on over a month ago why are they not ready now. Never received an answer and that was our last conversation!
If any additional info desired PM

I could do an exhaustive search for ALL my other posts but I think we both can agree I made a valid point. I actually started out sticking up for Canyon boy do I feel like the fool now - putting that out in the open
Heck even the best of us get taken once in a while
