Custom 10 ft long cataraft for sale. I built this boat four years ago for whitewater, fishing, and overnight trips. Selling this raft to pay for some unfortunate truck repairs This boat uses dependable MAXXON 10 ft cataraft tubes and a frame kit from http://www.rowframe.com/ with welded front yokes for high strength. This is a very solid cataraft, much more stable and durable than a $1,500 Outcast cataraft with a wimpy frame. This raft will row Class III whitewater with up to 250 lbs weight on board or up to about 450 lbs for flatter water (e.g., Kenai). This boat rows incredibly well, I've rowed 4 miles up Twenty Mile river on an incoming tide and even rowed up the Kenai just below Skilak lake. The pontoons have very little drag on the water. ALWAYS STORED INDOORS so NO WEATHERING OR TUBE DAMAGE.

I custom built the rower's seat platform and standing platform out of marine-grade wood sealed with marine epoxy. The rower's seat can positioned behind the front basket for fishing with a small seat over the front bay for a passenger. Alternatively, the bay can be moved to behind the rower for a more aggressive rowing position for whitewater. The Speedrail fittings used allow the frame pieces to be adjusted and fixed in various positions. The frame can also be quickly disassembled to fit it on an aircraft.

I also built a foot platform for the front passenger which has 16" wheels. The platform can be flipped down (see photo) so that the wheels can be used to roll the raft around like a wheelbarrow. This is great for those river-put-ins that aren't right off the road.

The complete raft weighs approximately 95 lbs all equipped and can be fit on top of a standard pickup canopy or even the roof of a Subaru or other station wagon with roof rails.

Raft includes:
-Rowframe.com 1.5" schedule 40 6061 aluminum tubing with SpeedRail fittings (adjustable) ~50 lbs weight. $450 retail.
-MAXXON P-10 Cataraft tubes, $899 retail, ~40 lbs
-Cataraft Mini Mag 8 ft, 2-piece oars (three total, one spare) with carrying bag.
-Brass oarlocks on adjustable aluminum stands with oar tethers
-Lightweight folding seat
-NRS 1"webbing straps
-Front foot platform with 16" wheels
-Anchor rope system with locking ratchet and marine-grade pulleys (no anchor included)
-Foot pump
-Repair kit
-Rod holder with mount

I am located in Anchorage and can meet at the Northern Lights Fred Meyer during weekday work hours or at the Abbot Fred Meyer in the evenings and on weekends. I can also deliver the boat within 30 miles of Anchorage.

OUT OF TOWN TILL JULY 4 WITH NO E-MAIL. I'LL RESPOND TO MESSAGES UPON MY RETURN
