Am I poking a sharp stick-you bet. Bob
Bob--

Walker Bay has had a very poor reputation for rather a good while without any apparent effort to improve. Several years ago there was a flourish of complaints posted on several of the sailing forums and I do know several folks, us included, that had planned to buy their folding transom rigid hull inflatables that did not as a consequence. Hopefully you can get some resolution to your problems but don't count on it. A company that disregards its customers will eventually fail but will hurt a lot of folks in the process.
