NRS frame parts and prices for the standard 2 man culebra


The two man culebra is our most popular model of culebra.   It can be used with oars, but is usually paddled by 2 people.  This boat and all culebra models are totally break down, but this model only weighs 52 lbs (58 lbs with optional cargo slings).  These boats have been on waters all over the western hemisphere from Alaska to the Amazon, to New England and the Southeast USA. 2 man standard with optional cargo sling 2233.50 dxfpat\BOATS\Culebra\Standard 2 man Culebra Cargo.pat solid works\culebra\culebra std 2 man and frame

rescue culebra specs The Rescue Culebra is a stretched version of the standard 2 person.  It is stretched 2 feet, and has a stretched mesh sling also.  The difference between this boat and the stretched culebra with stretched cargo is the amount of handles and D ring patches.  This Rescue Culebra has a bungee corded and padded PVC pipe that is pulled down by a swimmer who can then climb in the boat and self rescue.  It has been tested on the most difficult commercial stretches of whitewater in Colorado.

stretched culebra with stretched cargo deck

and blunt ends

We took the stretched culebra concept, and the blunted end concept to make a 2 person Culebra that holds more cargo, and have as much capacity with a little less cost because we do not use as many handles and D rings.  A frame can be used on either rescue or stretched culebras.  Frames can be tied to the inside grommet strips without the need for outside d rings.  The PVC tube does not have a bungee in it, but has a cam strap instead.  This cargo system is not designed for rescue.  This boat was chosen by one of our customers as the best boat to transport in his short take off and landing aircraft.  At less than 70 lbs, It has the highest cargo capacity and the broadest range of use coupled with the lightest weight. BLUNT stretch culebra and cargo 2894.00 dxfpat\BOATS\Culebra\stretch culebra\Standard stretched 24Culebra blunt end.pat solid works\culebra\2 MAN STRETCH CULEB STRETCH CARGO BLUNT NOSE  AND HANDLES

Stretched Culebra with Standard ends. 34 in wide cockpit

includes extra 2 inch d rings and extra handles. (handles

removed from one crosstube and used on one end)

The customer designed this boat to be used with a frame most of the time. That is the reason for the extra d rings on the side. It is wider to permit more cargo, and stability. Because these cats can use a less complicated frame, this boat should be easy to transport. It will still be able to be paddled without using a frame.

Ask Jack if you really need the D rings on the outside or if they are an inconvienience for paddlers.

Culebra grande specifications This culebra model is the logical upgrade from the stretch culebra models.  We have had lots of fun with this size boat.  Great for 2 to 5 paddlers, and for 2 person self support to rowing self support.  It is great all around boat that is comfortable in big and small water. culebra grande standard on price list 2012 3817.50 dxfpat\BOATS\Culebra\culebra grande.pat solid works\culebra\culebra grande
Outfitter Culebra specs Outfitter culebra has blunted cones on both ends to give the maximum amount of length for the sections of fabric that are used.  It is the same width and nearly the same length as a culebra grande, but it has a longer water line, and more capacity.  It can take up to 7 paddlers.
