Like life in jurrasic park. It will find a way.

Everything of value on my boat either floats or it gets a lanyard and a floatie.

Really? Bashing? Must have missed it. Their pricing seems fair and the workmanship looks pretty good from the pics. I really like their system to fasten their dryboxes and coolers into the frame.

And where is this repository of fine gear? I see multiple nice ( if plain) setups in the background and no river in site.

The Frame is made by Sotar (not Canyon). those other frames are at the Sotar factory.

I chose orange because its my favorite color and will be easy to see me on the river.....

thanks for the compliment.

here is what the tubes will look like. the only difference is they will be 18' (so longer) and have double D's on the back to pick up the load of the "truck bed" that hangs off the back of the frame.

Those will be a good looking color combo, like it.

Canyon built my raft frame. My raft is yellow and grey, I am letting them choose the color, from what I have seen they usually put together some trick color combos, they said they would make it trick and blend and not fruit salad. I will post a pic when it is all rigged.

Whoa, that might be an exact copy of a friend's boat, 11' and all. It looks gorgeous, ESPECIALLY upside down fully airborne!

Duh, edit, maybe that is a picture of my friend's, now I see you will have 18'. Sweet rig, caterlac!

I like the colors. And 28" x 18'. Getting jealous.

My bad, With the frame Colors i thought it was canyon. Looking closer there is a lot of rectangular tubing involved. Didn't know Sotar was building frames. Are they having someone local do it?

Do you have a weight for that bad boy? Interested in seeing how it compares to my NRS Tank frame

1offshore28, Post some pics of the tubes when they show up! My next build is going to be on similar tubes, and would like to have a preview.


And to add to the smut, my 14er on the first trip of the year.....
