Super puma owners help

So I just bought a super puma for my 10 year old son who loves rafting and rowing. My willawa 2 was a bit big for him to handle so this is more his size. The boat is used pretty well but holds air. Any recommendations on frames ,oar size or anything else. Also I would love to find a couple of used thwarts so it could function as a paddle boat. So if you have any and would like to sale them please let me know. 250 for a single new one is a bit expensive. I appreciate all the help and advice I can get. My son and I would appreciate it

Ive got two brand new thwarts from 16' RMR. I don't know if you could get them to work but if so I'd let them go for $150 for the pair.

You can piece together a frame from NRS or on your own with Speedrail fittings. If you want an awesome breakdown frame talk to white water machine works.

Mini Raft Frames

I use 8.5' oars and like the balance but some run 8' or 9'ers too. It is a narrow boat so frame selection and oars are a little harder to dial in, IMO.

I've got two never used super puma thwarts I would sell you. $150 plus the shipping from Colorado.

I"ve got the Nrs fishing frame on mine, and it works fine but my buddies DRE is much much nicer and better I find. The NRS tends to have bolts loosen a lot.

PM me if you want the thwarts.

Can't wait for my little ones to get their own boat and start rowing me!!

Build or buy a small pipe nrs style frame. Cheap, adjustable and super light.

RBW Frame

Pardon me for this quick sales pitch! We sell NRS frames and our custom build frames and the price is not that much different and the performance and sizing is worth taking a look at. NRS makes the best frame that ships in a small box on the market. Great mail order frame. Ours have more performance features on the river and are much harder to fit in a small box. We are on sale through Christmas just to keep our production guys busy and paid in December. Give us a call for a free bid and design to fit you, your boat, and your needs. Maybe won't cost much more than the other choices. Riverboatworks.com 719-539-9323

Thanks everybody. Got oars taken care of. Now I got a contact on thwarts . And in the process of figuiring what frame to go with. Only bad part is the 15 degrees and freezing fog here. So the boat stays in the garage
