Here you go I have your smaller pontoons with a Waterskeeter Double Haul frame. Great little raft esp for Ohio/midwest rivers. Primarily used for steelhead fishing.
Need better pics, let me know!

These toons are great easy to inflate and manage. The yellow powdercoated aluminum frame is a custom prototype putting a 10 hp motor on for exploration of lake powell and others
Great products

These are way less expensive than other cataraft tubes. I build a steel frame and steel oar towers and epoxied the whole thing. The resulting raft is awesome! It is very maneuverable and so much fun to run multi-day trips on.

As an owner of a 14’6” Saturn raft I was excited to see how my new 13’ Saturn cataraft would handle. I took it on its maiden voyage Sunday, May 7, 2011. The boat is responsive, stable and just plain fun to row. With a few easy adjustments I was able to set it up with the NRS frame I use on the raft. I found everything in the description of this boat on the Saturn website true. Now I have options, I can row the raft with a load of gear on a wilderness trip OR I can row the cataraft on days I just want to play on the river. Thanks Saturn for “getting me on the river”!

I love my Saturn raft! My husband Tom and I have been white water kayakers for a long time and we originally purchased our raft for so we could share our river running enthusiasm with friends and family that weren’t hard boaters. On November 7, 2009 our 14.5’ Saturn raft was beer christened as Bertha and she made her maiden voyage as a paddle craft down the McCreery to Thurmond section of the New River in West Virginia. While we have enjoyed many a trip as intended, since then she has taken on a new personality. Bertha has become primarily an oar rig with me as the captain.

A year ago today, March 27, 2010 my grandson, Patrick and I took Bertha down a class II/III section of the Elk river. This was my very first time on the oars and I wish I had a nickel for every time I hollered, “hang on Pat, I don’t think we are going to make it”, but we did and I was hooked.

All summer I practiced rowing, first on class II/III sections of the upper New River and then graduating on to the class IV/V section of the New River Gorge. I was a woman on a mission. Tom and I were lucky enough to receive and invite to join an August trip down the Main Salmon in Idaho and I volunteered to row Bertha as a gear rig for the trip. Before we joined our
Salmon river running buddies Tom and headed out to Colorado for a couple of weeks. While we were there I got to test all that practice on the New River by running the Brown’s Canyon section of the Arkansas. I have a great respect for rivers and in my kayak there is almost always an apprehension when putting on, especially when it’s a river I’ve never run. Not so with Bertha. I couldn’t wait to get on the water and it’s been like that ever since I took up the oars.

At the put in for the Arkansas Tom and I ran into a raft guide who was taking his family out for the day. Tom agreed to help out the newbee kayaker in his group and the guide agreed to show me the raft lines. That trip was a learning experience. I had a great run but realized I didn’t yet have the skills needed to take off down an unfamiliar river without another rower to show me the way. At the take out I was pumped, ready to head on to Idaho and the next rowing adventure.

I was 56 when I did the Salmon trip last year. I rowed every mile with at least one passenger and part of the gear for a 12 party 7 day trip. Being on the river behind the oars every day for a week has ignited a passion, it’s like pouring gasoline on a fire. I already had a love of being on the river from my kayak days but Bertha, my big blue Saturn raft, has magnified that experience 100 fold. When we pulled into the take out at the end of that trip I felt like superwoman and didn’t hesitate to tell everyone so.

I’m still telling everyone about that trip and have a photo me rowing Bertha as my screensaver. I just can’t wait for the next trip and it’s been like that ever since I took up the oars. So much so that over the winter Tom and I bought 2 sets of Saturn Kat tubes. One set of 14 footers and another set of 13 footers. I think Tom sees me having so much fun that he decided we needed to be more than a one “raft” family.

Tom was lucky enough to win a permit for the Salmon Middle Fork for this coming July. Soon the weather will warm here in West Virginia and the local rivers will be calling. I can’t wait to get back on the water and christen our two new Saturn boats. This year I’ll have options while practicing for the next Salmon river trip, hum, do I feel like rowing the raft or a kat? Do I feel like being in a red boat or a blue one? Hum, do I want to row the 14 footer or a 13 footer? Options, and it’s thanks to Saturn that I have them! Bridget Tincher, Happy Saturn Owner
