This isn't mine, but is an entry into the raft porn hall of fame. At first glance, I couldn't tell where you would row from. If you read the ad, there is a cover for the footwell so you can sleep on the raft. Drool.

No idea where the picture was taken. The boat is posted on the East Idaho Craigslist and is not mine. I thought it deserved a nod here.

here is my newest creation, I copied some of the double barrel fittings(I work in a machine shop)

6 Rockets will go in the second bay and in the rowers compartment. socond bay can also hold 6 gal. H20 cans if needed. I made aluminum bimini mounts with snap pins for extra strength quick removal.

looking nice, what is going on there on either side of your seat?, what are the fasteners you have the wood decking attached to the side rails with?

thanks for the compliments,

I have hatches for the drop bag on either side of the seat is also on sliding rails allowing for/aft adjustment of 6". the decks are bolted down with 5/16 ss bolts into each fitting the double barrel fittings are copies of the White Water Machine Works fittings which are copies of the Wild Goose fittings which are copies of someone else's fittings ( can't remember the names) they make a great and easy system for double rail frames.

every thing covered with grey outdoor carpet for Home Depot. anti slip and does not get hot like aluminum. also nicer to kneel and walk on than diamond plate.

I'll get close up pics of the bimini bracket later.
