Up until I tried the stern frame, I thought I wanted to have one someday......

What would you recommend for a good short center mount frame? A NRS Longhorn Raft Frame?

Thanks - BS

A longhorn should work just fine for this, although you might have to shorten the side rails a bit. In the future if you decide you want to have a larger gear frame, you can get some longer side rails and add a couple cross bars.
