I just picked up a (barely) used mini max with your frame setup. It has the front seat/table. It is still at my buddies house who grabbed it for me but I hope to take it out soon (once I can get out of my house and play on the water). I seen a few of your posts talking about doing overnighters / 5 day trips with it. I am scheduled to do a Smith in late May and an Alaskan (Kisaralik) float in July. I get the setup for those trips and many more like em. If you have an extra minute or two, I would love to hear about how you rig it, especially with a small cooler. I do not plan on having any passengers on either of those trips.
Anyway, I am super excited to geek out to your fantastic work and put it through years of river miles!
Hi John, I went down the Gunny Gorge this past weekend with Ben Magtutu and his wife and friends. It was such a wonderful experience I am about to purchase a mini me. I've met you before at your shop and saw all the things you've designed for rafts. I'm interested in a frame like Ben and Shawna have. My I commission you to build me one? Your work is ingenious. Thanks for your attention.
Hi John, I saw your sweet frame on the mini me. Do you sell them or could you kindly send me a photo of the frame on the boat? I have a friend who welds aluminum but your frame was like nothing I had seen before. Thanks John.
