Frank, No the boat will be roomy and have plenty of space to stand up. I am planning a simple plank rowers bench and there will be room on both sides. The overall length is 9'
An added benefit of a stern seat is that it keeps the fisherman from standing to far aft.

What's the plan for the framing in front of the floatation compartment? It looks like the bottom of the framing is sitting on the chime logs.

Pat, the storage locker was intentionaly left with a gap so water would pass. No floatation. I did a quick displacement calc, and these will hold gobs. I thought about putting a lattice or slat floor in the bottom and maybe a sliding tray in the top. You could be sitting in the bench seat and lift the seat lid for access to open boxes of flys and other paraphanalia, and simply close the lid for uncluttered fishing. I had also been thinking what to do with the anchor lines, so I may have net bags inside the locker so the wet line does not get tangled with battery cables, etc. This stuff may be something that is added later.

All good ideas. Years ago I was involved with selling the Pass Lake Pram. It had a different seat config, but it did have plenty of under seat storage including some sliding gear trays. Uncluttered fishing and casting was the goal.
