There's been some recent posts on the buzz this year about set-ups for PhatCats. At Riverboat Works in Salida Colorado we've worked with many customers to customize their PhatCat's. In fact everything we build is by working directly with the customer on what they are looking for in a set-up, no plug and play frames here. If you have some thoughts on how you want your PhatCat frame built or need a new PhatCat and frame give us a call... love to discuss it with ya. I attached some photos of recent builds we've done for customers. More photos to come... we're in the process of building a motor mount for one right now!! Call for your custom package deal. Riverboat Works, Salida CO, 719-539-9323

Phat Cat frames

I love my PhatCat! But why are your frames in short sections? The boat does not flex there, and there is no rise on the tubes until well past your forward section. I'm confused, as usual.

A lot of reasons, mostly this boat is used for day trips by our customers, especially here on the Arkansas. The trailer is a nice add on for multi-days and this system allows you to run it in the front or the rear depending on your load and what you're carrying (passenger, pile of dry bags, cooler, etc.).

We could make a longer frame but it creates a bit of a dead space over the front thwart and doesn't really allow for all the options for customizing your load. Also we are a custom frame shop and this is mostly what our customers have requested.

All that being said, if you have an idea in your head of what you want your Phat Cat frame to look like, by all means give us a call at the shop and we can work with you on making that a reality.

Hello, I’m thinking of ordering this set up for the Phat Cat I just purchased. Can I ask what brand and size cooler you are running in the trailer?
Thank you.

The two coolers that we've used that work the best are the Engel 50 and the Canyon 35. I personally like the Engel 50, the dimensions are taller more than wider, which allows having a medium volumed cooler for multi-day trips. If you don't need that little more volume then the Canyon 35 is lower profile and works excellent. Those are the only brands I can recommend because that's what we've run. I'm sure you could look up the dimensions and find similar-sized coolers in another brand. We do have both those in stock, give me a call if you want to discuss further. 719-539-9323

Sweet rigs! What are you using to support the cooler on the red PhatCat from underneath? Looks like a flat net?
