Cheap Subpar Dryboxes

Saw this posted on the PDX Craigslist, thought I would repost here in case you see these boxes. I know nothing about them...just putting the word out

what's that looks like a pipe integrated into the base of it? I thought Frontier were pretty crappy, apparently to this guy maybe a step up??

I'm just switching out all around to Canyon Inflatables boxes. well made and made in Oregon. The lids are bomber but they are making them with thicker lid material cause I'm a fat guy in a little suit .....

Hey, if you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it "guaranteed", I will. I got spare time.

The bar or split pipe you see attached there, was probably an afterthought on how to deal with all of that heat distortion that happens in thin material boxes. Here's to fat guys! I would suggest that you always look very closely at the construction of any "dry"box. Warping and the like will indicate a box that will have a difficult time lasting very long!

Yeah but that location should have been a bend from a brake

Hmmm, why would you use 6063 aluminum sheet of an unknown thickness for a river dry box? I have not heard of this grade aluminum in a sheet product either, a little research confirmed that if it is made, it is pretty unavailable.

NW Custom Catarafts, another quality company out of Oregon? HA

The non-deluxe model looks like an eddy-out box to me.
