We have certainly seen a few miles float underneath our boats. From Tierra Del Fuego to the Yukon, from Siberia to Phantom Ranch people have sat in our rafts or catarafts and spoke Russian, Ukrainian, Croatian, Turkish, Spanish, Quebecquois, a few African tribe dialects - and coast to coast all over our great United States of America.
We listen and keep an open mind so we can see what is possible, what is not, what works and what can be better. We've sat in eddies listening to praise and sometimes belly-aching. Then we come home to Southwestern Oregon as always and work on building even better boats. Boats that perform to the highest level, take harder hits, glide through the water and look sleek pulled up on the beach.
Alas, the cleanest run often requires the bolder line - and we decided long ago to design and build accordingly.
