No tinkering required. Why don't the RMR boys and Catchercraft dude get together to put a combo out? Hell Catchercraft dude could be the RMR raft distributor in WA, instead of going over to the Maxxon importer in Kent. Hell RMR could just have the container from where ever they are made in Asia sent right to Seattle for Catcherman.

Problem with that theory is there are already people selling RMR boats for dealer cost so they would be in the same position as dealing with maxxon. If people can buy it for cost they wont pay catcher any markup. thats the problem with these china boat whores, all they want is the fat pocket, Maxxon and RMR I am talking about.

Not talking about catcher at least they actually make something and can take some pride in building it not just out to fill their pocket!

I saw someone on the river this weekend slinging 2012 RMR boats at the boat ramp , not marked rmr but he said they were the same exact boat which they looked to be, they were all in the boxes except what he had on his trailer for demo. He knows where they build them and just tagged on their order and is selling them for dealer cost.

RMR will be going down also as soon as everyone starts ordering from that factory. The chinese have no loyalty they will sell RMR's ass out in a second to whom ever has the dollar. Soon RMR will have the maxxon syndrome trying to get all these dealers and get rich but pretty soon you have no product value it just turns cutthroat.

Shapp,

Not a bad plan...want a marketing job?

Actually I had already looked at their products prior to your post...if they carried smaller pontoons, then we'd really get serious.

I'll admit, we do follow up with folks after the sale just to see how things are going and to ensure they understand all the features and options, etc. but the price reduction on that particular raft had nothing to do with us.

it is only a matter of placing an order with the factory, those tubes have flat tops and bottoms, its just a length issue to make some 12' and maybe a little diameter reduction for a 10'

To be fair on this one, the $289 price is the 54-60" width. The ad doesn't say what width the Sombrero he is selling is. That affects the price because the a wider size has more fabric, tubing, etc.
