Don't have my raft here right now, it's in storage up on the river for this
coming weekend's steelhead fishing. But I have a U bar for my super-puma
(13ft), and I believe that frame width is about 4 feet. I think there is a
bigger U bar available for larger frames, and mine is the smaller one.
Mine is a bit tight of a squeeze to get into when you use a swivel seat,
because of the curved design of the seat mount crossbar (catches your feet).
A little easier if you're using a bench or cooler as a seat, with a straight
cross bar in front of the cooler. But I prefer the U bar to the J bar as it
doesn't bend down as easily, or catch your fly line. You can Velcro mount a
stripping basket to it.
Hope this helps!
