Is the seat on your fame lower, to lower your center of mass and increase the stability of your cat? If so is it that noticeable? I'm wondering if anybody else has this design and their thoughts.

My small cat frame has that (11' legend). I REALLY like it on that small boat, not for stability (even though it may help) but to flatten the plane my legs are in. That boat can get stopped hard and fast and the flat plane makes it easier not to fall forward. My 12.5' legend frame doesn't have the drop seat and it is fine on that size boat that doesn't get pushed around as much.

lhowemt nailed it correctly , they already build a drop seating position but I had them drop the seat bars a little more than they normally do for lower CG , I bought the Phantom but the creeker model which is a smaller and made to fit the 11' tubes.
I will snap a picture of how the oars stow for transport. Pretty sure it was a madcatr I saw them on but I may be wrong.

Oh I get it. For some reason I was thinking it was spare oar storage, duh! I'm guessing that you take the blade off, slide it in, and replace the blade, right? Interesting......

So nice, that looks like the yellow I picked out for my custom canyon frame. That is a canyon right? I love mine. we broke it in on the middle fork Salmon last July. It was fabulous.

I am so stoked just got my new rig put together for a spring GC trip. I have a brand new Recretec frame. It is absolutely awesome. It is so functional 2 big boxes 2 captains boxes and big Yetti Tundra cooler. The quality and workmanship on the frame is outstanding and a great company to work with. I have no connection with Recretec other than a very happy customer.

Beautiful set up. What kind of trailer is that and where did you purchase it?
You got the frame from the guy near Corvallis, right?

It comes from Mirage trailer sales in Nampa, ID. I think Cascade Outfitters sales them. The wings flip up load all your gear, flip them down and then load the raft. Yes the frame is from the guys in OR.

nice trailer. I will check them out.
thanks.

I like Recretec over the NRS frames too. If you get over to Oregon and want to do the Rogue with us, let me know.

We run it all the time.
