Hands on Tension Strap
The SuperCat is pictured from the rear with a hand on the tension strap and the seat in up postition. The pontoons in "fishing mode", as seen here, are 45" wide measured from the outside. In the "backpacking mode" the pontoons are only 28" wide which makes it much easier to maneuver to your favorite fishing spot. It is a simple process to reverse the tension strap to convert to "backpacking mode":
1. Fold the seatback to the down position. The seat straps will be used as the backpack straps.
2. Remove tension strap from the clips on each pontoon and extend the strap to its maximum length.
REVERSE TENSION STRAP
3. Reverse the tension strap at the back of the pontoons. Looking at the back of the SuperCat, the strap will need to be clipped at the top right pontoon, wrapped around the outer part of the right pontoon, across the bottom and around the outer part of the left pontoon. While pulling the pontoons closer to one another, re-tension the tension strap and clip into bracket on the top left pontoon. The pontoons are pulled closer together. The pontoons should now be about 28" apart measured from the outside. One of the unique patented features of the SuperCat.
When you reach your fishing spot, reverse the tension strap back to its original position.
That is all there is to it. SO EASY!
