FAQs about the cat 16

What our customers are saying:

We have been using the RS 16’s since 2018 and have been very happy with them. Their small turning radius is helpful on our narrower river. They are easy to maintain and transport and provide an excellent safe platform to coach from. Tom and Barb Kraft are incredibly helpful and responsive, their attention to detail is always appreciated.

- Kit Bennett, Director of Rowing and Varsity Head Coach, Skyline Crew

This launch is the best coaching platform that I have used in over 20 years as a Division I rowing coach. Once I coached in one, I knew that I had to get them for my staff. We currently have 4 in Omaha. Please come to Omaha and take a test drive
