Market Research - please help!!

Hello and Thank You!
My husband and I are trying to start our own Whitewater Hardgoods Company (hopefully this spring!) and we were wondering...

What's missing out there?

We'd like to focus on ways to move boats to and from the river and custom accessories (IE made-to-order oar-frames, modified ammo-cans, trailers, fire-pans, custom dryboxes) . . . also please list what you feel would be a FAIR price for quality, not Made in China goods.

Thanks Again!!!

I've always wanted an easy, convenient way to attach and detach ammo cans from the frame, without those stupid ammo can slings.

I've also always wanted a sand free sleeping bag.

Figure those out and you'll be rich!

A trailer that attaches to my bike to haul a kayak & gear to the local playhole! Hopefully less than $150.

Freeze dried beer would be nice. Less weight more beer. Not quite on subject thought.

A good quality community camp shelter that can hold up to the wind and doesn't require dozens of stake out lines, oars and trip hazards for drunk or sober campers. Something that doesn't puddle and require part of the group sitting in the drip line would be nice too.

Might be able to help with the ammo cans right now depending on your frame...
Good luck with the sleeping bag!!

We thought that freezing beer and using it instead of ice would be a good idea . . .
I bet freeze dried beer would be WAY less messy! If you figure it out, let us know!!!
Thanks!

frozen beer

I froze a beer at home thinking it would be a good way to have ice and beer, but when it thawed out it was flat!
