I agree I looked at the post with the cataraft videos and saw your youtube channel of you rowing. But hey I don't film myself and put myself out on youtube so I really have no room to talk smack.

So just to be transparent I do own one of his frames, I don't really do the bias thing just because I own it makes it quality. Don't need to push his work it speaks for itself especially seen in person. I am not his buddy, nor his facebook friend etc. Just a previous purchase.

Think I opened a can of worms. Carl thanks for the picture. Is that the long horn NRS frame? I think I'm gonna get a rower seat and use the cooler up front as a seat. bave you tonight about switching it the other way around? I'm gonna be using my raft 90% of the time for fishing. I don't have a trailer so I'm hoping I can fit it on top of my Subaru Forester or else I'm gonna have to roll it up up every time. How long does it take you to assemble the frame?

Thanks for the info

With that said 802, you should PM spider and get the details on his frame. It's super nice, I've seen it up close.

Mine really was a question. I'm trying to handle the James situation differently and ask questions before making accusations so I'm glad Elkhaven said something. 802, Elkhaven is one of the folks you can trust here. If you look at his frame pics you will see that his frame is one of the most beautiful, well thought out frames you've seen. And it's customized with some really cool ideas.

NRS frames are awesome and if you choose one you wont regret it. It will be safe, it will last as long as you want and you will be able to infinitely customize it as long as you keep it. I hate constantly saying this stuff about NRS but I feel like I have to say something to counter riverbound.

Like Elkhaven said, If you choose to go with the ultimate in a welded rig, shoot Spider a PM. I've seen his stuff and you can't go wrong with him.

" this is a fact "

Come over and run it at 2 and a half time the flow that every boater in the US runs it in the fall.

If they keep you out of a nice custom frame they win. If you buy one you have a nicer frame and point goes to the other team. Don't let people play your ass think for yourself whatever you choose. I sent you a link to a couple other places these guys won't help you with.

White water Machine works, Rectec, Mad cow, Phantom frames from Greenwall ( his website just changed again and I can not keep up, DRE, Sotar, Dusty DRL river Gypsies, Rowframe, I am sure I missed some of them. Do a search for cataraft frame or raft frames or custom frames. The list goes on.

Has there been a "mini boat day" where a bunch of Buzzards raft together? Could be a fun way to meet some people and see everyone's rigs. Just an idea.
