Adjustable Width Rowing Frame for Inflatable Boats, KaBoats and River Rafts

Easy to assemble and disassemble rowing frame allows more comfort for fishing and rowing than regular aluminum bench on inflatable boat. You can install swivel platform and comfortable folding fishing chair to better fit and longer hours of fishing.

Frame width is adjustable to fit variety of raft and boats. Anywhere from narrow KaBoat to SD518 Saturn boat and most rafts. To fit on more narrow KaBoats, as a DIY project, frame tubes need to be cut shorter with hacksaw, and holes need to be re-drilled to use screws to keep frame at set width.

Folding frame made of heavy duty, rust resistant anodized aluminum. Can be disassembled for easy storage and portable transportation. To use this frame you will need following optional accessories (not sold by seat of adjustable straps to secure frame to at least 4 attachment points, rowing oars, oarlocks, swivel base and fishing chair.

Optional Parts

If boat or rafts does not have attachment points, such as D-rings on sides or splash guards with grommets on top of tubes, then optional glue-on D-ring patches need to be glued on both sides of raft or boat to use with lashing tie downs.

Quick Tips:
  • You may need to cut out perpendicular tubes shorter to make it easier to fit inside main frame for narrower type of boats, such as KaBoat.
  • We recommend using WD40 to make assembly/disassembly easier.
  • When inserting or removing side frame into or from main frame, try to hold both hands at both insertion points at the same time, and then move side frame inside or outside at equal distances/steps in order to avoid side frame getting stuck under the angle inside main frame. If it happen, step on side frame, spray with WD40 and pull main frame slowly, or use rubber mallet.

Built fine, but description inaccurate. Arrived fast and in good shape - would be great for most. But for my plans, there's an issue (minor for most but a big deal for me). The larger tube used is not to the specifications listed on this site. Instead of 1.5"/1.3" OD/ID, it is 1.45/1.3. This reduces the wall thickness from .1 to .07 - doesn't sound like a lot but that's a different aluminum stock and makes it much less strong and not interact well with other aluminum I planned to join with this.

My box arrived damaged, apparently, it was mishandled during shipping and some bolts fell out in transit, I contacted boats to go and they quickly got me replacement parts. The product works as advertised and I had an overall great experience with boats to go. Good lads over there.

Good build quality, well manufactured and affordable, not much else you can say... It arrived on time and it was well packaged. 5 stars from me.

I really like having the option to row if necessary, this was very straightforward to install and had no issues with it. Good job.

The oar setup with the original purchase is ok but it does not compare to a proper rig like this, this is much easier to use and you can move about much faster. Its pretty simple to assemble and I opted to keep it on my boat permanently, I find it its a better option for me since fitness was one of my goals for this purchase, I try to row everywhere I go and I also have a small trolling motor in case I need it. This was a great desicion and I am glad I signed up for the mailing list.
