    An aha! moment.

    When reading the raft thread it did seem like Coastaldrifter was putting a lot of energy into pointing out every possible upside to Rivertech and every possible downside to Streamtech. My thought was that he was just an over-zealous Rivertech owner in a "My Ford is so much better than your Chevy" kind of way. I can be naive. It didn't occur to me that he makes or sells Rivertech and uses undermining the competition as part of his promotion and marketing strategy. It's hard to get good consumer reviews when the reviews are supplied by those selling the product. Kind of the way Yelp has become less valuable, with the restaurant owner and employees giving all the 5 star reviews.

    Plenty of evidence from his IP address-based denials. He almost certainly lied. So I am OK bashing him. I might hate (HATE) liars and other cheats more than you do. It's my nervous tic.

    I don't think there is any problem with confirming the shadiness of it all. Maybe you should let it go.

    Hello Everyone,
    After a couple phone calls and an email this morning bringing this topic to my attention. I would like some information on why members on this forum are being associated with our company.

    If you click on one of the avatars of them, you can start a "conversation" (revered to as a PM-personal message)with them.

    Likely because Canyon Whitewater became Pacific River and shares the same contact phone number with RiverTech and has the same sock puppet shill out lobbying for both of them. Just a guess.

    I hope all of this is wrong. Seems like a far more straight-forward and long-term profitable route to winning boats sales would be to build a better product at a fair price, and back it with straight-forward business practices. It's also a far less stressful way to conduct your life.

    Sawyer Squaretops listed for sale by Coastaldrifter on our forum:

    And suspiciously similar oars posted around the same time on another forums. Notice the phone number listed. It's the phone number for Rivertech Boats.

    Probably should have google your own phone number... Pretty dumb.

    Excellent detective work, Rob. We seem to nearly always sniff a foul odor and then nail the perp here on WFF. There are several examples in recent months (this thread, Totez's second accout yesterday, Billy's photo deception, probably others I've forgotten). I'm amazed people still try to pull the wool over this collective's eyes.
