Does anyone have an opinion on a frame for a Maravia Diablo?

Streamtech makes a nice fishing frame for that boat. Lots of rocker. Watch the weight.

Sure do. I have an NRS outfitter 4 bay. Works great. I do wish thatit was a double rail system but other than that, I like the modular system that I can reconfigure as needed.
The narrowness of your boat between the tubes is the primary factor (at least for me) when outfitting this boat.

The streamtech That Spider mentioned is an awesome fishing set up. Sold through a division of Maravia in Boise.

I Can load some pics later today.

Simple, light weight, provides configuration flexability. Mine is actually set up much different than this is now.

Thanks for the info and picture on the NRS. I want to have a customer frame made but seeing I want to be on the water NOW that is not reasonable.

Please keep the info flowing as I would love to get opinions.

Build what you want with Double Barrel fixtures from Guy at Whitewatermachineworks.com. I built one for my custom Zephyr and I'm really happy with it.

Also, while talking Diablo, I ordered a Dry Box from Cambridge to fit. Thier standard box narrowed to 34" worked out perfect and is rock solid on the NRS frame.
