Options for Rowing Frames???

I am wondering if anyone has input on rowing frames. I'm looking for a simple frame that I can use for a 13 foot sotar that I can mount either as a stern frame or center mount. The only frames I'm finding on line are NRS, and their stern frame doesn't really look like it would work for a center mount due to the position of the oar towers. Anyone have any other good options?

Go talk to either DRE or AAA and have them make you something interchangable- I imagine it'll probably mean you'll have to have 2 sets of towers, but with SpeedRail that would be a 10 minute swap-out.

AH- just noticed you're in San Fran. So you're going to have to find a local frame fabricator to build what you want. Or, you can sketch out a design, buy the parts and pipes you need from Hollaender, and have a regular metal fabricator bend & cut the aluminum for you.

Why not get a centre frame and paddle raft when you have a large group / small volume river?

There is also Clavey River Equipment in Santa Rosa? I think.

I have never been to the shop, just the website.
If you are in S.F, CA.
