Carman is a native of Cynthiana, KY and the wife of our Chief Operations Officer John Ratliff. They have two beautiful daughters, Abby and Emma.

A beginning kayaker in her Fun, she has set a personal goal of getting on some local Class 3 runs before the end of the season. Her very first whitewater trip was rafting down the Upper Gauley and she loved it. She definetely is hooked and has set her sites on kayaking the Upper G and firing-up Pillow Rock, which is her new favorite rapid. A big smile hits her face whenever she talks about The Pillow. Look for Carman next year giving Pillow Rock a big ole’ splat in her Fun!

    I am about to purchase a Jackson Big Tuna. I have been looking for the maximum capacity. I am seeing anywhere between 400 and 500lbs depending on where I look. Would you please clarify this for me. Thanks!
