LOL - he could use a motto of "driving business away since 1900". Dang, you should have linked to Buzz threads before he locked it up.

It's not like he's hard to spot. He's brutally obvious as he uses the same tactics that he thinks will sell his boats. Even when you think he's changed and improved his customer relations skills, he inevitably reverts to his belittle this guy and push this guy. I knew who he was. I've given him several ideas on how to sell me and others a boat and even with the cheat sheet he seems to think he knows "people" better. He's kind of like the Donald Trump of boats maybe?

I still get a laugh out of this stuff. Got off the Rogue boat testing in 30k water at 11:30 and I am a celebrity again. Send me my check!

I have an honest question for James so I can get this all straight.

Is this correct:
Canyon Whitewater Inflatables is no longer in biz
Canyon sold equipment/designs to PacifiC River Outfitters and is not affiliated with Canyon other than that.
James is listed as associated with both Canyon and PacifiC River Outfitters according to State registrations.
How is RiverTech related to either Canyon or Pacific River Outfitters if at all, or the principals of either company?

I am not accusing anyone of anything and was not a part of the WFF discussion in anyway and am not going to post anymore on this thread.
Thanks

Excellent question Shapp, Is it alright if I send you the answer to all that in a PM. I am trying not to promote anything on the buzz as per request and respecting the paying sponsors. Feel free to post my answer publicly if you want I just don't want it to look like self promotion by mentioning what I am doing,I do like particpating in technical discussions here sometimes.

As the saying goes, where there's smoke, there's fire.

I don't think there is any denying the beauty and apparent functionality of Canyon Whitewater, Pacific River Outfitter, Rivertech Fishing work and gear. But wow! 3 different forums and all 3 with very similar threads on the questionable business practices of Canyon and straw man postings.

I don't get it. I have not seen any complaints about your products in any of these forums. If I were in the market I would be tempted if it weren't for the consistent thread I see in the different forums. Instead of changing your business practices you seem to bash those that aired complaints, closed shop and started anew.

Good Luck with PRO & Rivertech. Your frames are beautiful man, let your work speak for itself.

Not to get into the mud slinging on other threads, I am still confused Greenwall, who owns Rivertech?, you never did answer that in the PM I sent.
Thanks
