Thanks, Cy
No pictures. I have a very standard small "Cat" with my feet all the way forward and a small cargo bay behind me (5'-8" long x 5'-6" wide). For a passenger I add a 20"x 5'-6" cargo frame with a DRE hinged seat. The passenger sits behind me with her feet on my seat bar beside me. Great for an adult but I would not want a small child where I can not see her.
A drybox can fix under the passenger seat or I can run with just the drybox and no seat for a Middle Fork. 90% of the time I run the 12' solo. But I can add a passenger.
I move the rowing module forward to keep the weight centered.
Started out with my daughter sitting in front of me on a cooler, but the front of a cat is not a great location.
Hope to see you on the Poudre!
