Aire 156R with 72" NRS frame
I have an Aire 156R and a 72" wide NRS frame that I "customized". I believe that the length is 84" - I could have gone as long as 88", but I like the ability to slide the frame forward or back depending on load/passengers - it is a 4 bay frame with a nice-sized cockpit (the bays front to back are: table w/ drop bag, dry box, cocpit, cooler) . I went with AAA inflatables 10.5" oar towers that are on the inside of the 72" wide frame and I run 10' oars (the distance between the locks is roughly 72-74"). I built custom side decking and a center floor and I think that for me the set up is perfect. i'm 6'2".
