    Comments about NRS Longhorn Raft Frame:

    This is an awesome frame! I have an RMR 10.5ft boat and it fits fantastically on there. The frame is great for day trips and has the potential to be rigged for some over nighters. The adjustability of the foot bar and seat bar makes it easy to rig to any boat. A bunch of other options are also available for the frame.

    • NRS Longhorn Raft Frame

      Q:

      I would like to use this frame on a Model SE8 inflatable raft. I think it is a medium quality fishing raft that can be set up with a small motor. I intend to use the raft rowing on lakes and slow rivers in Northern CA. I don't like the rowing set up which is sliping the oars through what looks like carrying handles. The width at mid boat is 4' 8" to the outside of the tubes, 9'6" L. The boat is material is fairly heavy PVC. The owners lit. warns that the material is not compatible with gluing on D rings. I don't know what the pressure capacity of the float bladders is, but I am pretty sure it's significantly lower than a white water boat's. The company provides a transparent template to be placed on the bladders to judge the correct level of inflation.

      So my questions are: 1. Is the NRS frame compatible with this boat? 2. Will I be able to attach the frame securely using the existing carrying handles ("oar locks"), rope guides, spare oar holders.

        A:

        Tim, I found your boat on Sea Eagle's site. With it's 4' 8" (56") width, subtracting one of the 15" tube diameters, I get a 41" center-to-center measurement of the side tubes. The side rails on our smallest stock Longhorn Frame are 48" c-to-c. This puts the rails out 3.5" out past center; not a big deal but something for you to be aware of. As to whether the frame can be attached to existing points, I think so. On mild waters the frame doesn't transmit much strain to the boat. They don't want you putting extra D-rings on the boat because the material doesn't have any reinforcing woven material in it. However, they have added those handles, rope guides etc and that motor mount which will take some strain. If you found you needed another D-ring or two I think you could add them; but that would probably affect your warranty. Give us a call with any questions, 800.635.5202.

        A:

        John, from the online dimensions the center-to-center measurement of the boat's tubes is 38.5". Our narrowest stock frame is 48". So, the side rails will stick our ~ 4" past center on the tubes, not a big deal. I'm not sure the foot bar will fit down in that narrow center compartment, we might have to make a custom one for you. Looks like there are D-rings on the sides to tie down a frame. Please give us a call and we'll work with you to get a good fitting frame - 800.635.5202.

      Q:

      I have the longhorn 54" x 50" with a trib 12' sb. If I were to downsize to a 9.5 trib could I use the same frame?

        A:

        Al, if you've been using a 54" wide frame on the 12" Tributary, your side rails have been about about 3" inside the center of the side tubes. Putting this frame on a 9.5' Trib will put the side rails about 3" out past the center of the side tubes and fit right on the 50" long side flat area. This is fine and should work well for you.

      Q:

      I'd like to purchase one frame that could work on several different rafts. What's your recommendation for a frame width that could be used on 60", 73", and 78" wide rafts?
      Asked on 3/26/2015 by Curtis from NC

      1 answer

      • Staff Reviewer

        A:

        Curtis, with any frame you want the side rails to come out at least to the center of the raft's side tubes, in this case the 78" wide raft. With the narrower rafts the side rails can extend out farther with no problem. The slick way of determining c-to-c of the side tubes is to subtract one tube diameter from the boat width. Without knowing your tube diameters I can't be sure, but I suspect you're looking at a 60" wide frame. Take a look at the measurements of the Foot Bar - http://www.nrs.com/frames/Specs.asp#FootBar - Then you do the math and if you have questions, give us a call, 800.635.5202.

        A:

        David, you want the frame side rails to come out at least to the center of the side tubes. Figure that by subtracting one tube diameter from the full width of the raft. If this is the boat you have - http://rockymountainrafts.com/13_raft.html - then 75" - 19" = 56". I'd go with the 60" wide Longhorn Frame. Give us a call if you have further questions.

      Q:

      I have a super puma. I want to drop a cooler and dry box in the frame. I usually sit on the dry box with the cooler in the front. Which NRS frame will work for this? I also have a thigh bar, standing platform and a rear seat with anchor setup for fly fishing to attach to this frame.

        A:

        Well, you're wanting to add a lot to your Super Puma. It has a 66" flat area, which constrains what frame you can put on it. Also, there's only 30" between the side tubes. So, none of our stock frames can do what you want to do. Give us a call, 800.635.5202, and we'll try to put together a custom frame for you. A Compact Outfitter-type frame is the only thing that can give you both a dry box (which will have to be custom) and a cooler in the frame.
