Seems it would be weaker for rotational force.
They did not do it to save a pound. They did it for ease or frame building. A lot of older cat and raft steel frames were this way. Just bend it keep going. It eliminated some welding and took some time out of the build.

Our Sotar breakdown frame for a 16' cat was built that way and I never noticed and flex. It was a great frame for our first boat.

I am not familiar with this cat, but unless the tubes are complete shit this looks like a decent deal.

Great deal on the Sotar with the DS floor, not a great deal on the old Trib. I like that Sotar. I'm betting the cat is a PVC/ urethane base boat if Sotar repaired it for him. I spotted that IK deal today also, you posted it before I did

this seems like a pretty good deal on a good looking Hyside mini-max $1000. I could be wrong, haven't done much little boat shopping.

Hyside Mini-max R2 raft

If I had $1000 and lived closer, I would grab that.

I am guessing that a repair on the one chamber would be expensive, but if you could do it cheaply this would be fun to have.
