running the lower poudre with a cataraft

does anyone run the lower poudre with a cat? i am getting a 14' cat and am wondering if anyone runs the bridges run. if so what is your frame width between tubes? 43" or 37" is what i am trying to decide on.

Lots of people do bro! 43 or 37 should be fine, but I'd get the wider one for more diverse opportunities. We raft bridges down to .4 on the guage commercially, I'd love to do that in a cat....

You can run Stevens to the dam at any level between 1.7 all the way to 5.? In a 14 ft cat with a 44 in frame and 24 inch tubes. I hit it at 5 last year and the bridges where getting close.
