Wow making their own rafts? Can I tour the factory? Make sure you let rocky know what size you want

Hi,

Wait, where did I put my checkbook? Gotta get one of those right now before the price doubles!!!

And only a "little threat" of air leaks. Wow, such a deal.

From where I sit, anyone who would send money in response to an ad like this should indeed get what they get (or don't get).

FWIW.

But you'd be buying a boat from the guy who discovered the source of the Amazon.

I've seen craigslist ads from this guy.

"...are of comparable quality to Jack's Plastics, Rocky Mountain Rafts, and Tributary."

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Tributary (AIRE) and JPW 100% made in USA by the companies themselves?

So what everyone knows turds float! Last year I saw and number of turds out there ripping it up. I have a friend with 5 tough years on his vanguard. Hell I even saw a Baltic last year on the main salmon. The owner claimed to have 4 years on the boat of hard use. I think that these cheap turd boats just piss off those who throw down 6K for a maravia, sotar, or Aire and actually believe that turds are unsafe because they bought in to over priced over build boats hook line and sinker. And at the end of the day, the turd boats will float just fine. Seeing all these turd boats on the water makes me wonder if I will ever consider and "name brand" boat in the future.

Good for you. Why do you propose to know what's going on in the minds of complete strangers?
