I got it used, I beleive it started out as a Bighorn I. I did add an extra cross bar so my cooler and box could be cuddled. My frame is 60" wide and 68" long to give you an idea of fitment, I am a gangly person so my rowing bay is longer than most. The 6" oar towers that come with the NRS frames are worthless, I would suggest piecing together what you need or seeing if you can pay a bit to go to 8's maybe even 10's depending on your height and rowing position.
The rigs 4CRS has to rent are sweet, I've seen them on a trailer ready to roll, I never thought I'd get boat envy over a rental. They sell them cheap as a package at the end of the season too if you are patient.
Someone mentioned their bimini being too short, one of the guys on here drilled out the rivets to the lower supports and replaced them with 1/4" trailer pins letting them move the support up (closer to horizontal) making the whole thing taller, it looks like a good mod to help with head space.
When I looked at everything bags Ray at Tough River Stuff had the best setup, the material is doubled over so you get 2 layers of mesh over everything and the price cant be beat. I found myself wanting a fancier closing system and handholds for a passenger, now I own it I have no desire for either.
Also OP, while these are more than many other options they dont make your water taste like plastic and you wont have to replace them every few trips. I was originally appalled at the price for a smaller container but wont ever go another route.
