Weight or Size for "breakdown" frames?
So I am looking at frames for a cataraft and had a question. I am trying to decide what the best way to design my frame would be. It will be for multi-day trips including the Grand but also I want it to be used for more expedition style rivers where flying gear in may be necessary.
That being said would it be better to have it break down into fewer pieces and be lighter but more bulky (less joints), or have a couple of differnet breakdown points so I could get it smaller but it would weight more because of the added joints.
I want the frame to be as sturdy as possible and not shift around a lot and I am concerned that added joints will make it less possible to have a solid frame and it would shift as I rowed through rapids. Any comments/thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
There is always a reason not to...
