I think I will take some pics and contact NRS to see what they have to say/recommend. I have plenty of room when setup with four bays and cutting a couple inches off the frame length is what I am leaning towards.
Then i say chop its like its hot. Send pics into Nrs explaining why their frame size documentation is Flat out wrong. Maybe you can talk them into sending you a breakdown frame kit for your troubles (in case you want to use the same frame to do daytrips and expedition)

In case anyone was misled or felt offended (butt hurt?) by my earlier comment, i was being SARCASTIC when i suggested hialtitude should let his frame wear through his boat so that he could get a new boat because of it. It is, Rock Solid, afterall

Hey, if you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it "guaranteed", I will. I got spare time.

I had some e-mail correspondence with NRS and they assured me that the rubbing of the frame would not wear through the Urethane fabric. They also said I could buy some Urethane fabric to extend the wear patches if I was still concerned. All in all I think that the customer service was fast and direct, which is a major reason I purchase NRS.

Anyway, here are a couple photos of the frame length.

You might want to file or sand the ends of the pipe so that there is no abraiding edge near the nrs plugs
