No one's trying to protect a certain vendor, but posts trolling for him or by sockpuppet accounts are likely to get spulled. There are still a ton of discussions about this vendor.

If you have received a PM from the user "Andy Robinowitz" please forward it to me.

Thanks,

I like that the oar masts are movable. I am curious what you do when the floor wears out? Do they somehow weave that in after the frame is built?

OK, folks, apologies for the misfire - my bad. that post had been removed along with another. At the time we were getting inundated with new users and and other folks coming to the site solely to complain about a certain company.

From the MB community rules:

Can you verify that the originator of this thread indeed complained about pro/canyon or whatever in the past? If that's the case, it would lend more credibility to his claim of receiving a cat and frame 3 years late.

Not insinuating that the original poster is a liar, but there have been lots of bogus user names.

Thanks.

Yes, the OP complained about Canyon/PRO in the past. I've seen no reason to doubt it's valid.

Why not do what many other forums do? Lock the thread and ban the user. I too agree there is valuable information even in these troll/shill threads.

There is something screwy with that thread, even as a mod I'm not able to quote it.... so here is the content from that original post by Awalsten, just to clear the air:

"Reminding Buzz participants to not support "Pacific River Outfitters" in North Bend, Oregon. James still, After 3 years, owes me $3200 or a cataraft, frame, and dry box. He's opened PRO and I'm sure his unethical business practices will be the same as was Canyon Whitewater inflatables. I want to save other boaters the emotional and financial pain of what I went thru. I contact James every week and he fills my head with hope. No more. James will post responses under his many guises lying how I'm wrong. We've all seen it. And I don't care. Please feel free to supply forums I can post on to warn people."
