The Down River Captain's Chair is one of the most-loved additions to a raft frame in the whole industry. This seat is easily the most comfortable highback chair out there, and it is build out of LD frame piping that will withstand a tremendous beating if you flip your rig and it rakes along the bottom of the river. What's more? This chair can operate as a flip seat, as well as completely detaching from the frame to become a lounge chair to bring on shore.

How to Size your Seat:
Measure the bay of your frame you wish to place the chair over inside to inside. The chair legs will arc inward as they rise, so consider sizing up so that the chair will still function as a flip seat over your cooler or dry box. For example: If your cooler is 17in wide, you should consider ordering the 18.5in Captain's Chair so that the chair legs are sure to clear the corner of the cooler.
Pro Tip: Why is the LD more expensive for the Captain's Chair? Its because the fittings used for all captain's chairs are the same, but the ones for LD piping require an extra metal collar to step the size of the attachment down from XD pipe size to LD pipe size.
