That's a "Rescue Rung" which is self stowing with some ingenious bungie cord mechanism invented, made and sold by
Dave Yeamans [d.yeamans (at...) comcast.net], 392 Navajo Rd. Los Alamos, NM 87544, (505)662-7747.
Or you can purchase this item through the GCPBA store:http://gcpba.org/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=5&products_ id=21

I've also heard it called a WRS - "Wife Retrieval System"
If mounted appropriately (mid tube height), it will work on an upside down boat as well.

You'll love the side rail racks. They give you extra gear strapping space, a walkway if needed, and you can reposition them where you need them. I use two sets of the 3 foot ones.

I took my seat bar off (sit on my dry box), adjusted the frame and added a cross bar for a fourth bay. I also got rid of the stock kick bar and replaced with the NRS deluxe crossbar/kick bar combo.

All in all, a much more efficient use of space which gained me an extra bay for a drop bag and table in front.

Pretty much what I did also. Ditched the NRS seatbar and went with a flip seat over a drybox. I also ditched the standard NRS foot bar, and had AAA make me a crossbar / foot bar combo. I had them make the angle & depth of the foot bar to my specs. The standard NRS foot bar is kind of a waste of space in my opinion, and the Deluxe foot bar was a little too wide & deep for what I needed.

The pics are when I started putting my new frame set-up together in the yard. The York box in the back was replaced with a new dry box from Partner Steel.

Here's my real boat:

2004 Vanguard with 4-Bay DRE Frame, DRE Drybox w/ standard Igloo cooler. Its got umbrella mounts front and back that I would probably do differently if I had the chance ( on front of frame wrapped with foam and ductape). Soup cans over the oar locks to protect the tarp I keep over it.

Its a glued PVC boat and I've been very pleased. The VG has extra chafer pads all around the top, and the bottom is as thick as elephant hide. No leaks, no patches. Its been a great value and hasn't had a single catastrophic seam failure, though every morning, from what I've heard, I should expect to go out and find my frame sitting among a bunch of PVC scraps...

Lots of days on the river.

Here's the basic setup:


Here it is on the water - you just can't see much of the boat for the load of trash I'm hauling out though.

Here is my rig. Got to buy or build some decking. Great place to tie things down and its great to easily walk anywhere on your boat. I'm standing more than sitting these days.

Yeah I'm real careful not to leave any kayaker on the river

This is my setup---very simple, but efficient. This is my 9th boat/frame configuration counting a couple that I set up for my teenage sons (at the time). For this stage in my life with just my wife and daughter and a couple trips a year--it's perfect.

I call her Ginger. She's a big sassy lady that likes going deep when I talk dirty to her. The black one is Huck L Berry. He was born for life on a raft but likes it best when I keep her loaded flat. Figure less will get caught on rocks in those rare times she is on her belly.
