The NRS frame system is a marvel of simplicity and strength. The LoPro Fitting, cast in 356 aluminum alloy, is the heart of the system. Bolted into the ends of cross members and attached with a “coined” stainless steel U-bolt, it allows you to locate crossbars, seat bars, etc anywhere along the side rails.
The frame pipe is 1 5/8" outside diameter, 1 3/8" inside diameter. It is made of anodized 6061-T6 aircraft-grade aluminum for high-strength, long-wearing durability. We make the frames right here at our Moscow, Idaho facility, so custom modifications and special requests can easily be done for you.
In this series of photos, Matthew and Melissa set up a Fishing Raft Frame. They also add a Stern Seat Mount, an Angler Seat Bar Casting Platform, U-Shaped Thigh Bar, a Rear Casting Platform, a Rear “Y” Thigh Bar and a Raft Anchor Mount.
We’re showing you the assembly of the complete Fishing Frame, because it has the most parts of any of the raft frames. Putting this complete frame together will only take you an hour or so. Any of the other NRS raft frames will be even easier and quicker to assemble.
Note: The frames now feature our forged LoPro Fittings and Oar Mounts. Also, the Universal Seat Mount replaces the welded seat plate, allowing you to place a seat anywhere you want and custom adjust the seat angle.
