    Default Beware Klamath Boats

    I learned to fish for stripers on SF Bay and in the Delta on a Klamath boat, and when I looked to buy a new boat to fish Montana lakes, Klamath was one of the first companies I checked. And Klamath was great at answering the phone and paying attention to me when they were courting my dollars, but after I purchased a boat, the service turned completely terrible. Twice they sent me touch-up paint that doesn't match, and when I've sent emails and called, they just don't reply, though I was promised they would. They just don't care. If you're relying on a company to stand behind its product and treat customers with appreciation and respect, Klamath Boats is not the company for you.

    Did you buy directly from the Klamath factory in Fairfield, California?

    I’ve owned the same 14 foot Klamath for 30 years and fish out of it more than 80 days a year. No leaks or problems and would recommend them. I’ve not had to call the company so I don’t know about customers service but they make great boat. Touch up paint��.

    Locally they have been popular for many years.

    Some like them because they have a square chine.

    Touch up paint for a tin boat? If that's the only problem you're having just handle it yourself. You've got a great boat apparently. Run the hell out of it and enjoy it.
    Almost sounds like ol Johnny Morris might have bought the company.
