Madcatr Frame

Got my frame from Dave and it looks great! Plus, working with him was a real pleasure from start to finish. Very easygoing and accommodating. And great communication - called me several times to ask questions or make a suggestion. I'm very happy with the frame, so much so I've already added my name to the waitlist (2016!) for another one since my 4 kids are now all wanting to row and we need more floating things.

Here are some pics:

Aluminum or steel? Can you fit a seat on it with that big cooler

Madcatr Frame

I'm looking forward to getting mine. Hopefully sometime in May. And yeah, Dave is really great to work with. I can't believe how available he is to help with the decision making process.

Aluminum. Frame geometry, including rowing bay, was designed for cooler in the back. It is a little tight with the seat (maybe 1 or 2" farther forward than I'd like) but that's b/c of the unexpected width of the Canyon. I'll prob take a smaller cooler for shorter trips and will see how the big cooler works after some time on the water with setting ideal seat position.

Sharp corners on those boxes- right next to your thighs. Looks like a potential injury if you hit something while sideways?

1. Boxes will be out of raft for day runs. Just in for multi-days.
2. When in, the seat level is above the top of boxes. I also have some ethafoam padding if I want to use it. I really doubt it will be an issue, but we'll see.

Looks awesome. I need a frame for a 12.6 cat that Sotar is making for me and mad is surely on the short list. Those boxes shouldn't be a problem since they are level with the seat. Is the wait really that long? 2016?

Payette River Equipment also makes nice frames. They are powder coated steel and the wait time is usually around two weeks. They are based out of Ontario, Oregon.
