When you’re building a raft frame, one key feature is adjustability. This is exactly what the NRS modular raft frame system is designed for.

All the parts quickly and easily move to exactly where you need them. This helps get your raft setup precisely how you want it. And, if you need to add or adjust gear, or change your setup, it’s as easy as loosening a couple bolts and sliding the pieces where you need them.


NRS Modular Raft Frame Adaptability

What makes the NRS frame system really unique is its adaptability. You can have one raft, yet have a ton of different setups.

You can have a raft fishing set up. You can have a multi-day expedition set up. Or you can just have a minimal frame if you want several other paddles in the boat.
