Im getting bored just watching the outdoor channel all winter and decided I need a little winter project. I bought a 14' used raft and now I need to build/buy a frame. I have all the equipment to make a nice aluminum or steel rowing frame.
Just was wondering what is the tube diamater for the frame that is best. I am planning on building one where I or a passanger will be sitting on the aluminum tube in a mounted seat.
Also wondering on what you guys and gals did for the corners. I see that Alaska raft and kayak sells 90* corner fittings but is there a better way?
And if you were building your own fame what features would you add or take off (coolers, rod holder, tiedowns, less weight...)
