Confirms my suspicions and my experiences and is the reason that I switched to only kayaking and not participating in raft trips anymore. I've experienced very little conflict among the kayaker groups that I boat with but saw lots of it on raft trips.

Since the separation of rafting and kayaking I've noticed that the kayakers showing up to rag on rafters is happening here but rafters could care less about the kayaking threads.
Confirms my suspicions and my experiences that 'kayakers' only show up when they want or need something. I've experienced very little conflict on my raft trips because I invite friends and people I would like to hang out with. And instead of labeling them as 'kayaker' or 'rafter' I view them as people.
Hell I even boat with catarafters - which I don't get at all......
bucketboater may be an awesome person IRL but on here he pretty much just shows up to piss on other peoples threads. Or starts threads like this to try to piss on a whole group of people - particularly anyone who has considered buying anything that wasn't made in the US of A.
It would seem that he enjoys this and most of the people who replied (sorry for the generalization ) are a little sick of his judgmental crap. So while I would boat with almost anyone on here I think I would take a pass on this guy. Too much drama.
