Why Buy our Frames?
#9. Custom designed and built for fishing, whitewater, day trips, multi-day trips or all of the above. Check out our fishing/whitewater convertibles.
#8. Custom built to fit your boat exactly, not in 6” increments. Our precise custom frame design incorporates the exact dimensions of your boat and the crew. When you pick up your boat and frame, the staff at Riverboat Works makes sure everything fits and works together seamlessly for the best possible performance.
#7. Constantly innovating to make a better boat. For instance, we created no snag hip loops on our lean bars. Our rounded design prevents snagging fly line and is more comfortable than straight “horns”. The loops provide secure hand holds while seated and a safe place to store flyrods.
#6. Built to last — life time warranty not to fail under normal river use (backing over with truck not covered).
#5. Built with top quality, lightweight, super durable 1 ½” schedule 40 anodized aluminum pipe.
#4. Built in Salida, Colorado, USA, by boaters for boaters.
#3. One day service on adjustments and retrofits done by appointment while you wait (go fishing or play in Salida).
#2. Increased production facilities: now building up to 3 frames at a time with most orders finished within one week.
#1. Customer satisfaction 100% guaranteed.
Everything you built for me worked perfectly, from the seating to the custom footplate. Thank you again for your ingenuity and ability to create a custom, stable raft that easily kept me afloat during several of what I considered to be near-death experiences.
We believe in our products – that’s why all of our frames are backed by a lifetime warranty. Yes, we’re that nutty.
