I recently purchase a unused Dave Scaddon Dragonfly with two frames. The guy who had it didn't seem to know much about rafts and went and purchased a second frame. The one for sale is aluminum, either sprayed or powder coated black. It comes apart in three sections for transport and has a anchor system ( no anchor or rope comes with it) and a small motor bracket. It also comes with a fitted go pro selfie pole. Also is a front casting brace. The Dragonfly is a 12 ft x 4 ft raft so the frame would work on similar sized raft. There are no seats with it, but it has the three mounts. For just the frame I would like $600 which is a real bargain. Dave offered me a bare raft and inflatable floor for $1000 so you could build yourself a very inexpensive fishing raft. I really like my Dragonfly, it's eight layer vinyl and a very tough floor. Don't let anyone tell you Dave builds a weak product.
Why so cheap? Well, I have no idea how to ship the three piece frame. Each section is about 40 inches buy 36 inches. So at the moment you will have to pick it up from Redding Northern California. It might be possible to ship via rail north or south or maybe via Greyhound. The real problem is I have no idea how to pack it for shipping.
If you are interested and need pictures have a look at Dave Scaddon's website at the Dragonfly Three.
I might be interested in a like for like trade for a double handed rod and reel.
Please pm me in the first instant.
Thanks
Barry

Hi, Question. How do these work with only two people. Does it feel unbalanced?



Thanks


Nope, Dave Scaddon makes a two person version using the same raft with everything towards to rear. When I'm fishing with just me and a single fisherman the cooler and all the gear goes in the back. I wouldn't attempt class v rapids like this, but I wouldn't even on my own! Class 11 and maybe III I wouldn't see as any problem.

Thanks. I'd love to get one of those. Here on the island a regular full size 12ft raft is often to big for our rivers.

Having checked on the frame I see that it comes apart to manageable size sections so it would be possible to ship it. I don't know the cost, but I'm guessing at $60.
