'Earth' brand rafts?

Saw someone selling a raft that was supposedly made by a company called EARTH. Did some searching and didn't find anything.. Have any of you ever heard of them?

Thanks
Andy

dont buy if it is earth outdoors. circular logo, green and blue globe. the company brought unproven hypalon boats in from china and sold them out of a warehouse in commerce city. most of them had major seam failure once they sat in the sun for awhile. bad glue. the company didnt care to deal with issues as far as i could tell. i tried to help a repair customer out and deal with earth outdoors directly, they were rude and even hung up on me after saying their rafts were great and they didnt have problems. needless to say, they are gone from the map. one guy called me about testifying in a lawsuit against them but never called back. i imagine he cut his losses figuring he would never get paid. if anyone has different info i would be interested to hear. if there is another company called earth that is not related, my apologies.

zbaird- Thanks for the info!

Ya, the guy said the boat was made by some former NRS employees, that went on to form the company "Earth". Said he bought it in Salida and never used it. Seems like BS
