What's the word on these guys? Good, bad, slow? Looking at getting a frame from them. Price is right, how's the quality?

Great Frame!

I bought a used frame and oars from him, the oars went to the bottom when I lent my friend my boat, but the frame is great! I have since gone back to him for pieces/parts for another frame, as well as transom mounts and such for that frame. I couldn't be happier, and the prices are good. His aluminum is washed and clear coated, not annodized. Some may not like this, hasn't been an issue for me! Welds are strong! My next frame will be from here, and I recommend them to people getting into a first set-up.
My 2 Cents!

Gary is the shit...I have one of his frames on my boat. You may have him hold off on the oar locks and get you some cobra's as his standard ones (NRS standard) are kinda not good for anything above class III

Here is a video of his frame getting pounded and still coming out good...
I still use this frame after this beating, only very minimal damage after this...

I've never boated before, but I have posted a lot on Mountain Buzz!
