Web site explaination:
THis site is more about Cutthroat variations available. The links below are for different frame configurations on different tube lengths. If you wnat to see more immages like the one above please follow his link to the photo gallery.
In the sub heading cutthroat tube specifications, you will see 5 different variations of tubes that we use on cutthroat models. These are not the only ones we can use, for instance one could order a cutthroat with 15 or 16 ft long tubes too, It is just not done with this boat very often. In the Sub heading Cutthroat 1 Narrow, you have the narrow cutthroat 1 frame in 3 different oar setups. Each of these setups are illustrated on each of the different tube sizes. The overall boat dimensions for that cofiguration are listed in the link. Below this section are some of the specifications, and oar recomendations. We continue the same logic through this whole page.
Give us a call and we can help you navagate this information, if you are having porblems.
The reason we show so many different variations is because the frame oar stands be set up in these various ways, and the illustrations show how the frame would be set on the tubes to get good balance with that variation. You will notice that there is usually a space under the oarsperson where there is no floor, and right in front of that is the foot bar. The lack of a floor allows for "flintstoning", a handy technique for fishing and for low water boating. When there is no floor under the foot bar, the oars person can get the balls of their feet on that cross bar, and the heals of their feet lower than a floor would let them. This is the most comfortable foot brace position for knees and oar geometry. One last thing. I like to have a small section of floor extending out from under the seat. This is a place I can stand to scout rapids in the boat, and I can still "flintstone" if necessary.
When you click on a link, the picture comes up on the screen, in the upper right there is a move or close icon. One can open up multiple pictures, and move them around. When you click on one, it automatically comes to the front. This gives a rapid view and comparison of variations and tube diameter.
Super Cutthroat reffers to 19 inch diameter tubes. For example, we would call a cutthroat 1 ftame on 19 inch dia. 13 ft long tubes "A Super Cutthroat 1 with 13 ft tubes."
For a more detailed look at these products please read about a free download program called E Drawings. There is a link to both Windows and Mac versions. Be sure to download the Solid Works Viewer. Then email us and we will send you a file that you can open and see all the different oar placements and tube designs (Cutthroat 1 narrow, Cutthroat 1 wide, Cuthroat 2 narrow, or Cutthroat 2 wide). One can zoom in and out, spin them around and even pull components off of other components so you can see details underneath. Look at the instructions on this page.
