The problem comes when that one customer, who has no whitewater experience, sees that marketing and decides that the boat is safe to run class 3-5 rivers in search of primo fishing or excitement. Maybe they have fun, maybe they get hurt, maybe they get the poop scared out of them, or maybe they trash that super cool class V boat that they paid top dollar for????
Welcome back, I was wondering if we lost you! Any idea where avatard is?
As for these craft, IMO, not Many targeted buyers have any idea what class V is, they won't take them off lakes or SLOWLY moving water. If someone decided to test out the "rating", it'll just strengthen the gene pool. Right DBK?
