Guide your paddle crew from the NRS Stern Frame. Available with our durable padded seat (for comfort) or a Skidguard Slant Seat, (better for stacking rafts). Fully adjustable to compensate for the rise built into the stern of your boat. Large fits boats 14 feet or larger. Low-Back Drain Hole Seat & 8" oar mounts included.
Please call for information regarding additional options.
James, looks like the Mini-Max has a 42" center-to-center tube dimension. We'll need to narrow up the foot bar and possibly shorten the stern rails. Give us a call, 800.635.5202, and we'll get a custom frame going for you. Be sure to have the distance from the end of the side tube flat area to the center of the back tube panel when you call.

Yes, this frame can be easily modified with basic tools. The side bars can be moved in just using the standard socket wrench that goes with it, and the cross bars can be shortened with a hack saw that can cut aluminum. Of course moving the side bars will affect the balance point on the oars. The clamp adjustments are easy so you can experiment with the position of the side bars and make any cuts to the cross bars once you are satisfied with the modified arrangement.

I have used this stern frame for several years on my 10.5' highside. I use 2 straps by the seat to the back ring. To fasten the front of frame, I glued two D rings to the top of the raft and pull straps (looped around frame) to D rings. Make sure seat sits on top. Will have a picture later this summer.
