The PRO Rig


Our boats are set up to maximize your safety, comfort, and convenience. PRO fabricated frames and dry boxes are used in the Grand Canyon by the majority of commercial outfitters as well as the National Park Service. Because loading and unloading this frame system is so easy, it saves you time and allows less experienced members of your party to jump right in and give a hand. The PRO Rig is the ticket if you need a completely outfitted boat. We'll reduce your boat rental rate if you get a shuttle and/or foodpack from PRO, or opt for the Painless Private.

Each PRO rig is ready to row with the following: boat, main frame with floorboard, front drop bag, rear frame with drop bag, folding camp table, cooler, cooler cover, hatch or table cover, four oars, your choice of rowing setup: (oarlocks, rites or thole pins), 34 cam buckle straps, bowline, low-volume pump, bailing buckets & repair kit.  PRO's frames are aluminum with diamond plate decking.

Check out our raft accessories for items that may be rented with a boat - side boxes, water jug, throwable cushion, throwbag, first aid kit and sand stake. Please bring or request to rent the appropriate additional gear. Be sure to read the gear requirements in the regulations for your destination river. Boat rental does not include delivery.
