    I've got a 13' Super Puma Alaska backcountry veteran raft on "long term loan" from a good bud. It came set up with a wilderness fly-in, break-down frame, which leaves a lot to desire when squiring my daughter and bride down the river here in the lower 48.

    Does anyone have a good source for a similar "veteran" used NRS frame I could pick up? I only use the raft 2 or 3 times a year, so don't want to pony up for a brand new one.

    Looking for something along these lines: http://www.nrsweb.com/shop/product.asp?pfid=1210

    Many thanks for any thoughts you might have!

    Something like this, with a rowing seat for me, a plank in front for my passengers. I can always add the back seat if I have another fisherman later on. Thanks for any ideas you might have!

    Send me the interior width dimensions and length. I pocked up a raft frame recently and it is not quite ideal for my cataraft applications.

    Some Hollander, Speedrail, Star or NRS fittings, 1-1/4" aluminium pipe @ $2/lf, oarlocks and seat you can build your own. If you get the NRS Seat & mount, fittings and oarlocks at retail, you've got almost as much as their frame costs.
