Testimonials for Goodwater Boat Works

“Many of our recent multi-day rafting trips (Middle Kings, Fantasy Falls, etc) have been on difficult runs where it is crucial to pack light in order to to able to maneuver and make tight moves. This requires that we only pack enough food for a limited number of days; therefore, making quick progress on the river is critical.

We are fortunate enough to be able to raft with the best and most durable rafts on the market, but with the abuse that they sometimes must endure, even these rafts get a tear occasionally. When we do have to patch our rafts, it is crucial that we can be certain that they will hold on our upcoming trips, as having a patch come off would be a real game changer on some of these trips. When in need of repair, we take our rafts to Vic at Goodwater Boat Works as we know for certain that he will do a top notch repair that we can trust 100% not to fail. Not only does he do perfect work, but he is always able to get our rafts fixed in a very timely manner when we have a trip scheduled. We always have peace of mind when we deal with Vic at Goodwater Boat Works!
“I put the boat through its paces, completing the run and falling over 200 feet throughout the day over a number of large waterfalls, including the largest drop yet to be run in an inflatable kayak (Metlako Falls: 82 feet). The story found its way into a Canoe & Kayak article. The patch lasted the entire trip, holding up to some serious abuse, and continues to stay true on the runs I have done since. Thanks Victor!”
