NRS 142 rigging

I just picked up a used NRS 142 otter (narrow 14'). It seems like these boats have a large following with anglers with most frame builds set up for fishing. I'm looking for any ideas/suggestions for a rigging a narrower boat.

There are many places that can make a whitewater frame for you if that's what you mean by rigging?

Check the raft porn thread on here and/or search for pics of peoples' Aire Pumas, Super Pumas, and Maravia Spiders.


Narrower cooler and drybox, keep your weight LOW since you won't have as much beam for stability.

It's narrower than the Otter 140 and E140 but not that narrow, similar to Aire 143R or many others. Look to the many other 14' rigs for the bay layout (4 bay likely). You will just need slightly narrower boxes than the otter and E140. You can use a 60" or 66" frame and 9-10 ft oars.

Nothing magical about the 142, but it is a great boat. I see the Otter 140 and E140 as wide rather than the 142 as narrow. What is 6" between friends
