Rowing Frame - Monster Garage Style
The Brothers Paisley and I spent the better part of last Saturday designing and building the center section of the rowing frame for our fly fishing raft project. The frame itself is made 3/4" EMT conduit. The elder of the Paisley Brothers (Greg) is rather handy with a torch so he brazed the joints together for us. I think it turned out rather well for something we built on the fly. The next part of the project will involve building the fore and aft fishing stations and adding oar locks,an anchor system, floors and a nice coat of paint. Once we finish building it, the entire process will be documented on the site (www.flyfishmagazine.com). Let me know what you think by leaving comments.
