The phat cat NEEDS to, wants to , is meant to carry some gear. My Grand nephew ran the Snake (Hells canyon) this June. He carried 2-2 1/2 gallon jugs, his personal gear and something else (I can't remember what on that trip) and could have/should have carried more. He is already planning a Bimini for next year. I have been thinking of getting one to see what I could pull off. Sure don't need one but would be fun.


PS:
He followed me through Granite down the right side big hole.

I love my Phat Cat!
I've got a big ass frame to haul gear.
I hike it (inflated) into the Gunni gorge for R2.
It's a glorified pool toy for 5-6 kiddos on the flat water.
It's run Westwater one weekend as a self supported oar rig and the next R2.
Snaggletooth? Yep at highwater last year both in full gear hauler mode and stripped down R2.

Nice pictures, that is what I had in mind somewhat. What is the length on your frame. Looks like you could have gone even longer.

Ive been following this thread for a bit: A lot of interesting interesting rigging ideas shown off here. Figured I'd show off my setup here. I love this boat for the daily r2 or solo row and it turns out the little boat can haul way more gear than I ever expected. I've done a Cat and Gates of Lodore hauling a pretty good load. Can't wait for it to be safe enough for them to lift the stay at home order the COVID to get back out.
cheers!
How long is and wide is your frame? Does Gary have your frame specs or could you e-mail me them? Are those the 8 x 8 oar towers? What length oars? Lots of ? because I like the frame design
