Yeah, no doubt there's allot more money in outfitting a new rafter and his raft for river life then there is in the actual raft, no matter the raft brand.For example, I may never buy an RMR boat but it seems like they are creating jobs for a myriad group of Americans, funneling purchases into local shops, allowing people to get on the water which means local food/liqour/gas purchases/shuttle company contracts, etc. I see that as a good thing.
What shop are you referring to?
Quit blaming yourself, it is my fault, not yours. I bought a ice chest from AustraliaYup. My three used rafts, two used kayaks, and three homebuilt trailers have been the final nail in the coffin of the US economy. And my refusal to scrap my old cars and trucks have only worsened things; plus my unnecessary carbon footprint dragging my poverty shitshow about the state has been the tipping point for global warming. Future historians will point to that one moment in 2014 when an identifiable single person precipitated all the resulting wars, famine and apocalypse and it all could have been prevented. Quit using the politicians and big business as convenient scapegoats and let's all blame the real culprit: Me. Me me me. For God's sake, someone get me away from the water before it's too late! Stop me, for your grandchildren's sake!
