As a former ID outfitter I would not bring in any investors. That sounds like a bad idea to me- those investors will want to be in the action and will question every decision you try to make. Go in alone. And frankly, a rafting biz is not a good investment. I feel you are barking up the wrong tree, friend. Get a business loan with the help of the SBA. Profit is 5-6 years? Doubtful. I had a business plan too- then I put it away and started running a business for real. Being an outfitter is a lifestyle choice and not to be done with ideas that you will make money. About the only way to make money in the biz is to improve the value of the company over time and then sell-out (if you can find a buyer).
Yeah I hope I have discouraged you. Just raft a lot and leave the burden of being an outfitter to someone else. Be a guide.
