    NRS has them on their website and the price ain't bad if it includes the frame.

    I was looking at the specs a couple of months ago, not a real friendly boat, weight wise. But certainly an eye catcher.

    Wow all the room and looks like a real boat. Lots of trip hazards but it is an inflatable. The drop stich has inflatables able to do things not possible before. Would love to row one and see if it tracks well and wind does not push it all over.

    Almost for sure that's without frame. They don't sell anything that just comes with a frame.

    I wasn't sure what "drop stitch" construction was. Here's a link if anyone else is curious..

    Drop Stich is cool stuff been around for years comes in and out of fashion. Thanks for sharing the link eh. It also does a real nice job on the Floors of the Pike IK stand, run and or enjoy the floor. I will post some footage of the Pike later on cool boat all of its own. The question will be who will be the first to try! I am being goated into so Rock, Paper, Cockroach!
