Don't have one but his stuff is very well built.

Take a look:

I shot him an email looking for a quote. I have a drop stitch HP floor and don't need standing platforms. Really want an anchor system, and didn't see anything about that on his webpage. Those thigh rests are nice, and I'd love to figure out a way to add stripping baskets to them. Pretty much want to copy the DRE fishing frame setup.

ID:	12006. The trailer frame is removable and he included additional lengths so I can run a kitchen box or ammo cans depending on trip.

I really dig that frame. What'd it cost you, if you don't mind me asking? I'm on the fence about the metal decking. You think it was worth the weight? Going from a wood frame to a metal frame, I'm worried I'm going to have a hard time getting used to the lack of flat surfaces. I could always add wood or plastic decking, I guess.

Total package for frame shipped was $750. I switched to my cobra oar locks, just because I was used to them. I have an NRS frame as well with wood side boards and weighs roughly a quarter more than this frame and the NRS frame is smaller as it fits the 14' er. The diamond plate is light and makes packing a breeze.

If people are worried about aluminum rubbing off (and I am OCD enough that I don't like it) then pick up a roll of 3" Surface Guard tape from Amazon. I lined the bottom of all my rails with this and it keeps most of the oxidation from rubbing off on my boat.

50 bucks for a roll of tape and it only keeps the black "mostly" off?!

Use Gorilla tape and it willl cost a lot less and keep the black entirely off. There is a thread around here somewhere about it.
