You are still missing two of the biggest kayak stores nearest you. Both are excellent.
Confluence Kayaks, Denver, Colorado
https://www.confluencekayaks.com

Golden River Sports, Golden, Colorado
Golden River Sports – Kayaking, SUP, Fly Fishing, Tubing & Rip-Boarding

Apparently River Boat Works, Salida, Colorado is still in business.

For custom sewn gear and good stuff there is solgear
https://www.solgear.com/
I sent him a template out of cardboard for my Jpw culebra and he made and awesome captains bag for it.

also
Raft frame, Cataraft, Cataraft frame, Rowframe, and Whitewater Equipment
his welding is really awesome. and you can get pipe at a local supplier so it is a cheaper way to get frames out east. The website is a hoot if you read the whole thing.
He built a frame for the culebra and it works great.

Colorado Raft Frame supply does use DRE orastands, and they make all the dryboxes DRE sells as well. Why reinvent the wheel I guess was their thinking.

Colorado Raft Frame was making some of our dry boxes for a couple of years, but we are now making all our dry boxes in house. We purchased the needed equipment towards the end of last season and are now fully up and running with dry boxes.

I was just in there yesterday looking at them with Travis, quality boxes for sure! Can't wait for my 16 footer to show up!

While I understand the logic behind this from a business standpoint, I thought it pretty cool of DRE to shoot Carter the business, he's a cool cat trying his best as a little fish in a small pond... Shame you did it, but I understand.



Will have to give Carter my oarlock design LOL...

Montana folks to mention:
Trailhead River Sports has an awesome new store in Missoula
Neff's Whitewater Customs in Darby for frames and RMR rafts
Mad Cow Metal works in Bozo makes the baddest dryboxes in the business. IGBC
Montana Raft Frames in Huson has a rod holder I have dreamed about

Wherever your home base is from, shop some local guy's stores to keep their hobbie fund going too!
