Cat Tubes

Any opinion out there on Bad Cat tubes? Website says they're pvc, so they are probably sprayed with urathane, but i thought i'd ask if anyone has had personal experience with them.

They seem real similar to the Maxxon tubes in construction, thoughts?

I drove out there yesterday to check out the boat, I thought the same thing, for the price, how could i go wrong? But honestly it's not the right setup for me, the frame is too small for the boat and couldn't carry nearly enough gear. Also the frame's bent. Looks like he blasted a rock head-on. Anyway, i'm sure he'll sell the boats, they're a good deal for someone, but i'm in no rush and i dont want to buy anything until i find what i really want.

Don't forget about the Clackamas Whitewater Festival coming up, that is usually a great place to see alot of boats and the even do demos sometimes. Something to wait for if you aren't in a hurry.
