Exactly the reason my table frame is the size it is.
I think you can just widen your some of your slots a bit and you're good to go.

My raft project is about an 8 month event.
Guess who's retired?
I'm trying to read here and learn, then think and listen before buying/building much.
Pics will be end of summer.

Sorry! I planned this boat for 9 months, so it does take time for all of us. The last boat purchase was 4 years ago. Fortunately my husband decided that he wanted to get into catboating, so he's using my "old" one, yay! Since it is a 12.5' Legend, it will be the perfect boat for him, no reason for us to have two that are the same size.....

I have seen a lot of tubework on 4x4s, dune buggies, and rock racers. A lot of them have unnecessary bends, or others have boring mitered angles. He's definitely an artist!

I got a cat, too.
A pair of Maxxon tubes followed me home from the Replay Sports spring 15% whitewater gear sale. Yeah, they're glued PVC, and they may only last me 10 years, but I'll take a $100/year investment in fun!

I need to finish my frame so I can post cat pics.

BilloutWest, start a kitchen gear thread. Snack table sounds like a great idea.

Ok, here's the beaver. 16' hyside, down river frame. Dyi running boards with marine grade grip tape. 4' front lounge space, throw one more landing pad on top of the others and you have the best bed in camp. Gopro on a pole, mounted in back for Westwater last weekend.

Do you have that set up to double as a table top?

Is it strong enough to double as a backboard?
================

I know no one wants to think this way but as a former EMT I've wondered about making that cover also a backboard.
Webbing / hand slots would be easy to accomplish, obviously.
Hence my interest in materials that look like what one would find some backboards made of.
It is not set up to be a table at this point but it is something I have considered and would be pretty easy. As far as strength the 1/2 should be sufficient for a backboard though it definitely would have more flex then a comparable plywood board.

How bout a blem spine board from trauma technology? I think they are 79$ +shipping. I'm thinking about one for my boat to add more deck space.

Pretty boat! I love the color coordinated snow plow attachment. Is that how you northern boaters extend the season? What's the correct height for moving ice?

I've got a friend that rips up V- on Maxxon's, any cat is a good cat!

Rojo and beware- the plow blade is great for clearing kayakers out of the prime surf spots- lmao!

All their spine boards are only 16" wide.
Then again, that could be a deck on one side with some accommodation on a larger tubed boat.

I've saved that source, thanks.

That actually makes more sense as one would expect that loosing a spine board to the emergency would happen.
EMT's wouldn't want to unnecessarily handle a patient.
Having a pro spine board would be very desirable about once in your river career.
Loosing a side deck wouldn't be that hard on the remaining trip.

Wouldn't a pitch fork be lighter?
