      A:

      The internal width between your side tubes will be the main limiting factor as you'll be able to move the tube behind the cooler as far back as needed (keeping into account your footroom). Depending on the inside width you might have to deflate your tubes partially to get the cooler in place.
      I bought the Coleman Heritage 150QA cooler for mine and it fits perfectly between my Tributary 13' without deflating the side tubes. I've only had the frame through one season but it's been great.

      A:

      For frame width, measure the center-to-center distance of the side tubes and choose a width that distance or the next size wider. A simple way to do this is to subtract one tube diameter from the total width of the raft. Measure the flat area on the side tubes to get the length. We can do custom lengths if you need them. This article will help you choose oar length - http://www.nrs.com/boating_tips/oarlength.asp - And please give us a call to discuss your options for getting just what you need.

  • NRS Bighorn I Raft Frame

    Q:

    Hi, I purchased an older Bighorn 1 frame for my raft, and the length is 60 inches, with a width of ~64" (measured to the outside of the tube clamp). My question is simply, what size NRS Raft was this frame supposed to fit? I have been putting it on my 12 ft boat, but it is wide. Looks like it would fit either a 13 or possibly 14 ft boat.... but I wanted to see what you thought. Much thanks! Willy

      A:

      Willy, we measure frame width from center-to-center of the side rails. If you are measuring to the outside of the LoPro Frame Fittings, Item # 91028.02, you probably have a 60" wide frame. You can look through the Frame Parts Specs charts to see which rafts work well with that frame - http://www.nrs.com/inflatables/specchart.asp - Could fit either a 13' or 14' raft, depending on its width. .

    Q:

    I am looking at purchasing an Odyssey 13'6' self-bailer and am not sure if this frame would work. If you have any information concerning what size frame will work please let me know. I would also be interested in what size cooler would work.

    Thanks

      A:

      I looked on Odyssey's website and they don't give specs for boat width, tube diameter and side tube flat area that we would need to give you recommendations on frame fit. If you can get those dimensions we can dial a frame in for you. In the meantime I suggest you go up to Replay Sports in Kalispell and check out the NRS Outlaw Rafts - http://www.nrs.com/category/3206/rafting/rafts?f-series=outlaw - They're about the same price as the Odyssey; I think you'll like the quality and features.

  • NRS Bighorn I Raft Frame

    Q:

    Is it possible to get the NRS Bighorn I raft frame in a shorter length? I have an AIRE Tributary 14.0 SB. I basically want a cockpit and a cooler bay in front of me. Mainly I want to get the heavy cooler off the floor of the raft. I am short 5' 5", so the cockpit could be pretty small. I plan on having my wife and 2 small kids sit on the front thwart, so I don't want the frame to be up there. We want to do overnight trips, but lean more on the backpacker style of packing than the bring the kitchen sink type.

      A:

      Eric, we can make the side rails any length you want. It's best to make a custom order over the phone, 800.635.5202. However, if it were me, I'd go with the stock 68" length (Trib 14.0 has a 70" flat area). Since your family is sitting on the thwart, those rails won't be in their way and you've given yourself the most flexibility with the frame and increased its resale value. Give us a call if you have questions.

      A:

      A 48" wide frame should fit your raft. Measure the flat portion of the tubes (after bow kick before stern kick) to obtain a length for the frame.

      A:

      According to Saturn's site your boat is 6' 8" wide, with 19.6" tubes. This would make the distance between the tubes 40.8". The Igloo Marine Ultra 94 Qt Cooler, Item # 70884.02, is the largest cooler that will fit.
