Got my rowframe!

A big shout out to Gary at rowframe.com! The fit and finish is perfect, and the final product is one of the best values out there. We are extremely happy with our custom designed frame. I highly recommend this product.

Thanks to all the mountainbuzz folks that recommended this route. Great advice and kudos all around!

Looks cool. I added these cheap end plugs. Covered any little burred bits and looks nice.

Hmmm.... that pic may not accurately show the frame centered on the tubes, but at first glance it looks like the inside rails are closer together than the center to center measurement between the tubes. If so, that's wasted space. And I have never understood why anyone would run a double rail without decks, whether diamond plate or HDPE or plywood - once you run decks, you'll never run without.
Gary made a frame for a 'pard here in SLC, we built the floor (HDPE), hatch covers and decks (aluminum diamond plate) and it came out really nice. Whether disbelieving or for whatever reason, Gary cut the cross pieces too short, but made good when provided email trail of measurements. The fittings are great. The oar tower setup does get your oarlocks out another 3-4 inches from the outer rail, those concerned with banging into walls/rocks will want to keep them inside the outside measurement of width of boat.
Nice workmanship, just hard to tell from the pic if the inside rails are correctly positioned...

Yeah the frame is off center to the left in that pic. It's not strapped in. I'm going to build plywood decks on the double rail if you have and suggestions.

I used a 5x5 baltic birch 1/2 inch sheet cut to fit and sealed with 4-5 coats of spar urethane. I really like it. The edges on Baltic birch are all real wood plys with no voids, so they seal better than typical plywood, but cheaper than marine. But people seal up all sorts of plywood, or use composites, and lots of different things seem to work for folks.

Just got the parts to make this frame from Gary too.
Stand-up guy, great prices and, an excellent product. Not the most efficient business to work with (no CC, really?) but, in the end, I'm a satisfied customer and will be back.

Polymax for your decks, zero maintenance, lightweight, and tough.
