Or grab one from the side of the hiway. Down here there a dime a dozen this time of year
The seats on my raft flip forward, using a custom-built bracket and tie-down straps. You'll see in a couple of days. My cooler fits under the rower's seat, or in the frame in front (where two can sit on it). The flip brackets make sense and improve access.
Derek, I'm looking forward to seeing, fishing from and even rowing the Green Drake. See you there.
My opinion... if I needed a cooler too.
Sitting on a cooler with no back support would do me in pretty fast. Those NRS rowing seats are so comfortable, I'd have to mount the rowing seat on top of the cooler and be real happy.
As fate would have it I'll be fishing with friend and stealthy fishing guide Derek Young Thursday and Friday. I hope to row my first raft for a bit, he has a 13' Streamtech Green Drake. He uses one of the flip seat brackets so I'll get to check it out too. I've got an older cooler that I did drill, backplate and mount the NRS seat to, but the bigger full bay filling cooler is new and I don't want to drill it if I can avoid it. With my oar risers and their adjustability I will gladly trade an inch or two of height for the comfort of that NRS seat. I know that lots of WW folks love the pads on their coolers. My NRS low back rowing seat sure has made my back side comfortable! More to learn this week and more to ponder.
Well hey there Ed,
How was your trip this past weekend?
Coming up this weekend.
It is going to be a blast.
