This is my first post, I've been all over this forum it's a great way to cyber slack at work. After swamping on J riggs in college on the Colorado, I was FINALLY able to buy a used boat, Maravia 14' Ranger I'm really psyched it's a 1991 SB but in good shape. Currently it has a home made EMT frame. Which as soon as I can throw one by my wife again I'm going to upgradre.
I have been emailing with Gary and his frame seem very reasonable and having a double rail would be great. Since I will mostly be doing fishing and mellow family floats for now with a few shorter overnights. But then when the kids get older I'm all about longer trips.
Does anyone have experience with Garys' KD frame seems like you can have a break down dbl rail with close to a rounded corner?
Also I really like the Clavey/DRE seat but I'm 6'4 and concerned about leg/oar room seems like Garys mount are high which I need, I'd love to buy HPMG's oar stands but I'm financially challenged.
Can people comment about rowing Garys' frames, also it seems they should be easy to change eventually I'll buy a new boat, my wifes is finally going back to work after 4 years.
