Murkydepths, Creature Crafts are built in Grand Junction, CO. Your local rep for CC is the owner of the company Darren Vancil. His contact info is available on our website if you'd like to get in touch. I'm sure he can find time to demo a boat with you.
I forget who asked but this year our Rescue Craft has a motor mount frame which we final-tested while we were on our annual Guide School trip on the NF Payette. It's bad ass.
And please; Creature Crafts are inflatable boats, that is all. They do not change the classification or hazards of rapids on rivers. However, how you deal with those hazards and what occurs when you encounter them differ dramatically in a CC than a conventional raft. The perfect example of this is the basic flip, otherwise ejecting everyone in a raft into the water, the Creature simply lays over and you flip it right back up, staying inside the boat the entire time.
Also thank you to the users who posted here with sane and reasonable responses. We do not advocate untrained, unskilled people in whitewater environments. On the contrary we take great efforts to include people in our training and provide them with the experience and know-how to safely use our boats.
So I am Brandon (RiverDriver) of Creature Craft and I did this whole thing a while ago on another forum. It's a good read if you are familiar with Mtn Buzz forums. A note on Creature Crafts
Anyway same rules reply, if you have any questions.
