    Hello! I am a complete neophyte when it comes to rafting and rafting gear but have recently been tasked with assembling a WINGS Inflatable cataraft (frame provenance unknown) that my employer had stashed in a storage unit.

    So I am planning out a frame for my new raft, and want to know if the rounded corners are much nicer? stronger? lighter? squeaky? etc. my last frame was a fitting frame, which worked fine, but I do like the look of the rounded frame corners. Are they worth the cost? (extra $160 to the frame)...
  9. Lawn mower seat for raft?

    Rafting | Gear Talk
    I was wondering if anybody has used a lawn mower seat as the seat for their frame? The NRS ones are great, but just a bit out of my league right now. Mounting the seat wouldn't be a problem. I'd want to try to find a white or yellow or any color that is not black. But I'm curious if it...
  10. What Frame for Super Puma?

    Kayaking | Gear Talk
    Hi All, I'm looking into frames for a new Super Puma. I like simple, two bay (sit on drybox or cooler, drybox/cooler/short table up front). NRS lists a max width of 48" for the frame, which makes the Bighorn I the only option from NRS. But, like I said, I'd rather have two bays, than the one...

  14. I need a breakdown frame for raft (Alaska bush trips)

    Whitewater Rafting
    My wife and I float arctic Alaska rivers each Fall. We use an Ally pack canoe. Which we love. But lately we have an interest in some rivers with some class III stretches. Namely, some rivers in ANWR and Gates of the Arctic. I thought it best to buy a raft. We got a custom made Sotar from the...
