Cataraft from two SOAR 14 Canoes
I've been toying with the idea of building a gear boat out of two SOAR 14 canoes. I've looked at the volume and capacity of two SOAR 14 with a frame compared to other 14' and 16' cats. It is similar but before I start investing in another SOAR 14 and frame, etc. I wanted some feedback from the buzzards. especially Cat boaters.
Here is what I have come up with.
Pros: I already have one SOAR 14. I live in the SE so I would use the two SOARs seperately more often than a 15ft raft or cat. Very low center G. Gear could be loaded inside the SOARs and on top of the frame.
Cons: It could be a very wet ride. It would be a wide rig as the SOAR 14 is 40" wide plus I would like 30" between.
