That frame looks sweet, is that an Entity? How do you like it? Also how was the process? The owner has a bit of a reputation, but the setup looks great

It’s the nicest frame I have ever owned. Not sure what is readily available if you just want to buy something there was a waiting list I got on. So if you need something right away there are other options out there. I saw on their Instagram new stuff is on the way.My nephew will be getting their new cat frame when they are ready. Pretty happy with the RMR and frame setup.

I get to play now! 16' Hyside purchased as a nearly turnkey package. DRE double-rail frame, captain's deck, and a diamond plate rear deck. Not pictured is the DRE table that nests over the (huge) drybox or covers the front bay. Planned edits are to extend the decking all the way back (not sure why the original owner had diamond plate everywhere but those decks), and maybe a bimini next year. Otherwise, pretty stoked on the setup. Also, the kid is small but not that small: the green pad is the "Truck" paco, which fills the back of a 6' tacoma sleeping platform. So it covers both the front bay and the huge drybox.

That is pretty much as good as it gets.

These rigs are so great, the skill and talent that goes into these boat builds is so cool. The designing and construction of oars, floors, frames, etc. are totally amazing to me.

Eddyline makes some of the nicest gear out there from what I've seen, and I absolutely love the sea deck material. Funny thing is, in the big scheme of things, their gear is way more bomber than the standard "handrail fitting" frames, but every bit as versitile with the lo pro fittings, which are much stronger and don't chew up the pipe. The southco latches are the icing on the cake..

Agree.

IMHO a 100% lopro frame is unnecessarily heavy and expensive. The only exception is if you love tinker toys or plan to fly in a raft/frame frequently and really need full breakdown.

Otherwise, what you spend to have someone bend corners and weld decks is offset by not buying corner Lopros. Bomber, with more features, cost is a push, and no significant weight penalty.
The Lopros on crossbars and oar towers make complete sense...the new forged ones are really sweet.
