Happy to see Seabright mentioned and also the good word.
We got ours earlier this spring and although we've only taken it out 3 times, we love it! The build quality is excellent. Very impressed with the thicker PVC and other features and qualities.
You are correct that Dan is great to work with. He really stepped up in getting it through customs and sent to us with little to no problems. Very smooth. Even went out of his way very quickly to help us with Texas' ridiculous registration paper work.
Also note that he typically accepts layaway and then you can wait for the best US to Canadian dollar exchange. We did and it saved us about $300.
Right now at around 1.24 it's a really good time to buy. If it's listed for $2,000 CA then it's about $1,600 US:
