Got my new convertible cat/raft frame built. Maiden voyage in the Lochsa this weekend. I've kayaked for 15 years and rafted for 11 and have never been in a cat. Pretty jacked to try cat boating. .

This is black POR-15, it will get a topcoat of POR's HardNose paint after a couple river weekends. (Had to order it off their website as it wasn't in stock in MT)

18"-24"-18"-18" bays. I'll run the rowers bay on the 2nd bay in the cat and in the 3rd bay in the raft. I went with modular 18" storage bays so I can move my Canyon Cooler, drybox, 2 drop bags and table among any bay without having to adjust. 11/4" EMT conduit. It's a tad heavy, but a double rail frame built with 14 NRS LoPros wouldn't be light!!

Crossbars are pinned to sleeves and the drop rails are held by pinned Speedrail fittings.

There are 3 oar lock sleeves in each oarlock stand. -3" back, 0", 3" forward.

Also working on some customized 20mm boxes for captains boxes.

I have a similar frame just one bay shorter, and love it. It's on 14' Sotar tubes, and it would be nice to have bigger tubes to better handle when i load it up for a longer trip. 15' tubes should help, but then you have an added bay. I also added captain's dry boxes that are a great addition.

Met a guy this weekend who built a tunnel play cat frame out of EMT, modeled after Canyon Inflatables' Vortex frame. It was sick--curves in all the right places and powder coated a metallic orange.
I'm proud of my frame, but it looked Spartan next to his!

How long is your frame?
I have a 14' Sotar and the older NRS frame it came with looks like it was cut short to be more sporty/light. I want to modify the frame to add length to carry more gear or a passenger more comfortably.
Thanks!
