A bit bigger than a shredder rolled, but not as big as I was expecting being PVC. Thanks for posting the pic.

If anyone is interested we floated 40 miles on the wallowa and Ronde and my two kids paddled it the whole way. 10 and 14 they rocked it and on the third day were just skimming by rocks with inches to spare just cause they could. My wife was super happy not to have five people on the raft all asking her for mom duties.

That thing looks awesome! I'm hoping to build something similar... What's the approximate length/width on the frame and what length oar shafts are you running? Thanks!

New red paddlecat

I have been testing a new paddle cat and spent this last weekend up on the Payette. An amazing little cat. Easy to transport and set up. Ran the Cabarton section multiple times. First in a ducky then a few times in the paddlecat. The paddlecat was really easy for people new to rafting to gain confidence yet was still super fun for those of us with experience. With those big tubes it can go anywhere.

Just got my Phat Cat in the water! Thanks Denny!
Just got off of a 4 day shake down trip on the Dolores.
RMR recommends a max frame of 60". This gear hauler is 82" with room to spare before running into rocker. The big tubes allow it to carry way more weight than it's little size would make you think. Friends calling me a "glorified kayaker" at the beginning of the the trip, were assessing their next boating purchase by the end.
Please excuse the sloppy rigging; shake down trip, the spare oar will be properly rigged in the future.

I just got a phatcat myself and have been looking at frames. This is the best one I've seen yet! Did you make that yourself and did you buy it? What size oars are you running? 8'?

Thanks. I sourced the fittings, oar towers, kick-bar and, seat mount from Gary @ rowframe.com. Most of the pipe I got locally to save on shipping costs. Oars are 8'.
