You're in Boise, so you should talk to Ron...with Payette River Equipment at [email protected] and have him price you one first.Hi Yall,
Wondering if anyone has info on how to build a cataraft frame for 16' 24" tubes. Any links for what is recommended frame size, instructions, materials lists, ect.
Thanks and Cheers for now,
Well I went down to HD and got some galvanized fence post (elcheapo . 2 side rails at 8ft and 5 ribs at 6ft. So the dims of my frame will be standard length but will cut to make standard width at 72". Also I think I am also going with the T-Clamps due to easy.RC,
I think for a first time frame builder, speedrail or lopros are the way to go because of being easy to change. I just finished a frame for a 16' self bailer, even with the ability to weld I chose bent and swedged end members and lopro cross members because I have never had a 16 footer and did not know what I wanted.
Now I can change the rails and have multiple set ups.
:emb: Sorry, my mistake.No not the Fence post clamps....those might be a little rough on the tubes. Ha! I think Im going with the Frontplays QuickFit T clamp.
