Welfelt Frame


John Welfelt of Welfelt Fabrications, a welder/fabricator by trade and boater by passion, has designed a very lightweight frame specifically for the Mini-me and Mini-Max.

-Built by hand in the USA

-Easy to put together

-Easy to break down

-Easy to carry

Weighing in at only 14lbs, the frame is comprised of polished high-strength aluminum and takes “Packing it in” to a whole new level. Taking up very little cargo space, this is THE PERFECT SETUP for backpacking remote rivers.

The seat is composed of lightweight aerospace honeycomb, with aluminum edges all around, stainless steel, rust-proof fasteners and a custom crafted cover of durable, top-grade water shedding outdoor fabric.

NOTE: Welfelt Fabrication recommends the addition of 2 ea 1″ D-rings on the outside of the boat to secure the frame properly. For the Mini-Max, you will need to retrofit 2 ea d-rings, as well as 2 ea thwart attachments. Add the Mini-Max package to the cart to include those parts. You’ll want to add a 4oz of Stabond 2 part adhesive to your cart as well as cam straps, if you don’t have any on hand.

Cam Straps recommended for the Welfelt Frame:

Mini-Me Frame: 4 ea 4ft HYSIDE Straps

Mini-Max Frame: 4 ea 6ft and 2 ea 2ft HYSIDE Straps

Front Seat or Front Seat w/Table Conversion: 4 ea 2ft HYSIDE Straps
