New 14ft drift raft Coho Catchercraft
I occasionally stop by to see what's going on here. This is my first post but since it pertains to my business, I felt the need to respond.
I know exactly what the gentleman paid for that raft since we sold it to him...I cannot comment on the trailer although it must be pretty nice by looking at the posted price of both.
The frame was originally designed to be put in the back of a truck. We told him that he would want to get a trailer eventually and it looks like he did.
He did get a lot of upgrades and accessories on that raft; however, the final price was about the same as other comparable rafts on the market. I feel the frame is much better than most available while the raft itself is less so. The way that frame is designed will fish better than almost anything available commercially and it was custom built per the buyer's specifications.
I can see where the whitewater enthusiast would think that particular raft is" one of the worst deals" out there but 1) that is not our (Catchercraft's) ad and 2) there is a bit more to it than shown but that's okay.
I think the weed comment is a bit much but that's okay too.
crap is crap but hey, someone needs to sell it. I guess its better than a Dave Scadden raft, maybe
