I told Cameron who works at Cascade River Supply (aka Cascade Outfitters) about the thwart idea. He asked Chris Frazee the president of Maravia about it and Chris found me the biggest thwart I've ever seen. It is the exact same size as the seat cushion on the couch. They let me have it for $50. I bought 4 Maravia thwart knuckles, some glue, MEK, and here is the result. Click image for larger version

My thanks to Chris and Cameron. It makes a great ottoman too. Now I just need to wait until the weather gets warm enough to test it on the water.

That is awsome. All it needs now is a frame and some oars and I would say you could take it and leave the raft home

Come on, you don't row a couch! You get a motor you can drive with one hand while the other holds the TV remote.

I bought one of these a last year, and I can still say, by far the best purchase I've made! I give it credit to saving everything after this pop as well.

Nice! There's no tipping that thing over! Was it hard for your kids to paddle it?
