NRS Cataraft Motor Mount
Item: 93100.01 | Product Description »
- The heavy-duty 1/4" thick aluminum plate is bent to fit over the horizontal bars of an NRS Cataraft Yoke. The mounting surface is 12" wide.
- The clamping screws on your motor press against the Motor Mount's surface, while the opposite side of the clamping cradle presses against the yoke bars, creating a solid, secure transom for the motor.
- The Motor Mount plate is held in place by a 2-ft NRS 1" HD tie down strap (included) when you don't have the motor mounted.
- A cataraft adapts well to use with an outboard motor. You can make convenient seating for the person operating the motor by moving your NRS Frame Seat Bar back to a comfortable position. Or, you can attach a Padded Raft Seat or Angler Swivel Seat on a Passenger Seat Mount or Angler Seat Mount clamped on the yoke or a crossbar.
- In our experience, a 10-hp motor is generally as large a motor as most boaters use. Even a 3-hp motor will move a cat along at a pretty good clip.
- Always attach a safety rope or strap from your motor to the frame.

Q:Using this on a normal yoke, and with a moderate load, will a standard 15" short shaft outboard sit deep enough? Thanks..Asked on 10/24/2013 by Markintheboat from Steamboat Springs
A:It would depend on the cataraft tube diameter. Take a look at the yoke specs to calculate for your tubes - http://www.nrs.com/frames/Specs.asp#Yoke - If you still have questions, give us a call, 800.635.5202.Answered on 10/25/2013 by Clyde from NRS

Q:I am looking to float part of the Colorado called Lees Ferry but first you have to motor up river to the dam. I have talked to some people and it sounds like I will need a 15 hp motor. Will a NRS frame with this mount handle that big of a motor. The cataraft is an Aire Jag. Thank youAsked on 7/21/2013 by SLOflyguy from Temecula, Ca
A:The mount itself can handle it, but you may tweak the yoke with that much hp. A 10 hp motor is about max on the yoke if you're going to open it up.Answered on 7/21/2013 by Clyde from NRS
A:I use a 9.9 horsepower motor with my NRS frame mount do not recommend using
a bigger motor with it. My 9.9 horsepower motor really torques the Cataraft
Yoke when I ramp up the speed. A 15 Horsepower motor might break it. One
option would be to reinforce the cataraft yoke.
Best of luck.
A:I had set up for a 15 hp evinrude 2 stroke but never tried it out on my jag. I think you'd be better off with a lighter 6 hp engine. It should move you fairly well. A 15 will be over 80 lbs on the rear yoke. If you don't have too heavy of current to go up an even smaller engine would work than the 6. My 9..9 moves my heavy 19' drift boat up through heavy current no problem. I doubt that you would even be able to go full throttle. It will suck the back end of the boat down.
Hope this helps,
