Building Casting Platforms?

Anyone build there own casting platforms?

I don't like the NRS platforms and the DRE platforms are too expensive and a little on the heavy side for me.

Any advice or plans floating around out there? I'll be building them for a 13' NRS Otter.

I'm assuming you mean just a platform in the raft that lets an angler standup easily. I've used a setup of marine grade plywood that's cut to shape and painted several times. I cut in 4 slots for threading a cam strap. The straps and platform are then hung from the frame. This does require that your frame has a lean bar in the front over the bow and the 3rd seat in the back.

get some nrs pipe and have a muffler or machine shop bend them to 90 degrees. attach them to your frame with low-pros and boltsome plywood on top. You may have to fill the pipe with sand to keep it from crushing when you bend it. My Puma cam with one very similar to this and it works great.
