Thoughts on cutting up my steel frame
Ok, newb to the forum and new to catarafts with the purchase of a 10 year old Aire Ocelot 14'. It's got a Recretec 72 std. steel frame and here's the question, I'd like to cut the frame behind the seat, then sleeve and pin the 2 halves for easier storage and hauling the beast to messy ramps and put-ins. Bad idea to lose the one piece rigid frame? or great idea for mid 60's couple w/ weak backs! Probably not going to use a trailer for awhile so the whole rig has to fit in the back of a 8' Tundra bed. Tubes and gear fit fine in back but the "boat anchor" frame has to go on top. CHOP or NOT ?
