NRS Sport Cat Frame - 66"W X 88"L
Item: 92072.03 | Product Details »
- This lightweight frame, only 74 pounds, matched up with a set of sporty cat tubes gives you a package that dances across the water.
- Whether you're running exciting day stretches or packing for multiday trips, the Sport Cat Frame fills the bill.
- It's an excellent choice for smaller-diameter cat tubes, such as the AIRE Ocelot.
- The drop side rails sit 5.5" (center-to-center of the rails) below the top side rails to provide proper distance from inside D-rings for frame tiedown.
- The drop rails extend to the ends of the top side rails so other cross members can be located just where you want them.
- Since the drop rails can be adjusted for width, with most smaller diameter cataraft tubes you can get about the same internal cargo capacity you'd have with a 72" yoke-style frame.
- The heart of the NRS frame system, the LoPro™ Fitting allows complete adjustability for all frame parts. Now made in stronger, lighter hot-forged aluminum alloy.
- NRS Oar Mounts are lighter, sleeker and stronger than ever with hot-forged aluminum alloy construction and a nylon insert to reduce rowing friction.
- Frame includes: Two Side Rails, two Sport Cat Drop Side Rails, four Cross Bars, Universal Seat Mount, Deluxe Foot Bar, High-Back Drain-Hole Seat, 6" Oar Mounts, two 9' NRS Straps and four Strap Slides.
- Seat bars now use the Universal Seat Mount for attaching the padded seats. Create your rower's seat bar for the High-Back Drain-Hole Seat by U-bolting the Universal Seat Mount to one of the cross bars. This allows you to precisely set the location of the seat and the seat angle.

- NRS Sport Cat Frame - 66"W X 88"L
I like this frame but the pipes fill with water & it is hard to drain them at the takeout so I can make the boat lighter for moving it. I want to drill small weep holes to allow the water to drain. Have you ever done this? Do you have recommendations regarding exactly where would be the best places to make these holes? Thank you very much.Asked on 10/16/2016 by Mark in Portland from Portland, OR
A:Mark, if you have the new forged LoPros, they're hollow, so turning the frame up on edge can drain water out. If you think you have to drill holes, start out with 1/8" and go up to 1/4" if needed. You'd want to drill at the lowest points to get full draining. After drilling be sure to file off any sharp edges.

Q:Should've asked before I ordered... but.. this will be my 5th season with this frame, it's worked great. One issue; the 6" oar mounts. To lift my 9.5' oars out of the water to clear surrounding waves, I'm pushing my hands all the way down to my feet to lift the oars high enough to avoid snagging those waves. I'm 6' tall... I just ordered 10" mounts to replace the 6" mounts (new style looks awesome, btw)... but now wondering if I went too big? Maybe the 8" would've worked better? Have yet to try the 10" mounts. Hoping for feedback before using in case I need to return/exchange. Thanks!Asked on 6/17/2016 by Tom from United States
A:Tom, I believe most people who use the 10" mounts are rowing from a cooler or dry box, or from our Flip Seat Mount. I suspect the 8" mounts would take care of the issue you're having, but personal rowing style can be quite different. I think only you can answer the question definitively.
