I got bit, go to there Facebook page. I saw another gentleman from Texas is having troubles. I messaged him . He has been waiting over a year. I think canyon is full of shit. 40 frames a month? I dont think he is building 1 a month.
You telling me they only do 1 frame a month, I am telling my Bro in Law he has been waiting for 3 months and they only built 2 frames ahead of him ,Ha!
Why don't you just come out and say that you ARE Canyon? It has been obvious since you joined the Buzz, just like with Catboater1, Paulw, Orto11, the stupid post about a new whitwater magazine and others.. It is ok to stick up for yourself in person. I guarantee you that an actual buzzard talking about your products (like the local guy who bought your dryboxes) is 100 times more effective than legions of fakes.
Sorry people have had trouble with these Canyon Inflatables guys.
Just to make sure there's no confusion as to the company everyone is discussing, it is not Canyon Whitewater Supplies in Idaho Falls. Dave is the man and runs a great business, wouldn't want him confused with somebody else's bad rep.
Agree, Gonzo (Dave) in IF is a good guy and wouldn't want to see him get a bad rep as a result of this.
Let's make this real simple. Igotbit can you post pics of the frame, particularly the motor mount bracket? I've seen the welds Canyon does I can tell if they are factory.
Also if this info you have is so terrible then create a google drive folder and share the info with all of us.
Regarding who is real and who is not. I live in Portland if anyone wants to meet with me and prove their buzz identity, I would be glad to help. Might cost you a pbr.
As you can see I have posted some, not all obviously.
And Riverhound, Here is my hypothetical answer your hypothetical order :
I will leave it as the OP has left a lot out and is in this situation by his own will. I would usually stay clear of this but as usual I believe someone is getting thrown under the bus unjustly. Needs no comment.
“ Riverbound: Why don't you just come out and say that you ARE Canyon? It has been obvious since you joined the Buzz, just like with Catboater1, Paulw, Orto11,”I am starting to totally agree , if not him personally then someone very close to them.
Since he decided to make it public they said they would give me a hypothetical situation
Hypothetical customer was sent a complete boat, tubes were new. BS tubes had no Canyon markings and a spot was worn thru to show threads underneath that or coating was defective. Acknowledged thru e-mails.
Electric trolling motor mount was not on pallet when it arrived- stolen by magic fairies or gremlins or never put on there in the first place whatever. customer wasn't charged for it anyway. A motor mount was never zip tied to the pallet , witnesses to unpacking , anyway electric trolling motor was not ordered /discussed a mount for a 5hp motor was and drawings sent in , reply was they had something similar and would send pics welded in and before powder coating. If welded in how can it then be zip tied ??
Hypothetical customer went to a welding shop and voided the warranty by having a full size boat motor adjustable jack plate scabbed on and welded with the most hideous welds one has ever seen then had the nuts to call and say the boat handled funny rode high in the front with a jack plate and a gas motor on a 10' cat and decided to demand a custom non stock size tube built to rectify the problem he caused.
Well a manufacturer does not agree to and discuss custom tubes with any customer DEMANDING anything again many e-mails discussing the custom tubes to replace the demo tubes sent.
Then attempted to sue for the full cost of the craft AND what the shop charged to vandalize the boat in the first place causing it to not function as designed . Hmmm I can say I felt better after hearing this and my mind was eased of our pending orders.
ATTEMPTED ? If this makes you feel better I wonder what prospective customers will feel ?
Dude you should have just sent it back if it wasn't right but I remember being told they didn't do gas motor mounts because of coast guard regs because I asked, but to chop it up and then want them to fix it and then send it back for the full cost AND the vandalism charge. Shame Shame I would call back with my hat in hand and maybe see if they would help you fix it.
Thank You, True Colors are showing so clearly. Yes admittedly I freely modified the frame as my trip was very close and was not going to be interfered with, as it was I had to borrow cheap flimsy aluminum oars due to getting nothing but excuses regarding mine being shipped.
Again Distortion - try again, nothing was ever said or discussed about CC regs ect until after the fact and receiving partial shipment. Also receiving oars what two months after the partial shipment and blaming it on Sawyers, funny when I called them they had no idea what I was talking about.
I would never stoop so low, I may have been stupid as some would judge(correctly) .
I really wanted to give the benefit of doubt, but my weakness is /will not be complete surrender. I may be considered / judged dumb but we will have to see what sentence I will receive
What are you trying to achieve by telling this story, just to piss and moan on the internet or wait let me guess you are trying to save some other poor individual this personal hell you have suffered, you came to the right place because let me guarantee this. No one on the buzz cares about you or your situation they just like they drama and BS, that's all this place is for the most part.
I'd say the message here is Don't chop up your new boat and try to return it, if there is an issue reject it or ask for it to be made right or a refund. seems like everyone else who has posted is satisfied with their stuff
Seriously that motor thing is huge
This kind of reminds me of the Eminem syndrome all the bad publicity just made him famous can't have the lovers with out the haters. If I had a business you would have just cut all your life lines for help by pulling this stunt. And if you doubt who I am for a moment I have no problem giving you my address and phone number to prove it,personally I really don't care who anyone thinks I am.
Why don't you just tell us what will make you happy then we can see what this is really about- simple. All this dribble is just Manic scribbling's at this point
I noticed the posts on the Canyon facebook page by Tom , who has also been waiting for over a year, have mysteriously vanished. I got bit, I have his contact info of you need to talk to him. I really wanted to order some dry boxes from Canyon but dont think I can wait that long.
