Not to mention blowing baffles and tubes from the heat.

Yeah i guess, but if you have ever launched on whitecap creek you would know that you can't really have your boat in the water, the creek is too swift and there is a logjam right to the right of the photo, I have seen a boat that was half in half out get swamped. So we just got all hands on deck and shoved off and let er buck. As far as getting torn on a sharp rock you should know that the actual ramp for the selway ends in a ton of sharp rocks, I have even almost flipped a boat on the ramp end over end because of those rocks. After that incident we removed some large sharp rocks off of the beach that were a pain in the ass in the past, and I can say that the ramp is much better now no thanks to the forest service. But if you ever get the chance you should launch on whitecap creek, it's a blast.

The pump is a bilge for the back and the dry box is only 6 to 7" high which is about the same as a DRE seat. Think it looks so high becuase the cooler sites so low. Heres a few pics of my cat.






It started out as a 4 bay frame built by DRE for me with 14 ft tubes. I added the fifth bay in front of the rowing bay and am now running 16 NRS Kodiak tubes

Slick setup. A lot of thought has gone into it.

Custom dryboxes?

Just curious--why do you run your oar rights down from the top of your oar sleeves?

Really nice setup. How are your side boards attached to the frame?
