Taking out the thigh braces is a must. take the thigh riser pads (the triangle shaped pads that are suppose to go under your legs on the seat) flip them around and stick them where your knees will make contact with the boat. Then buy the smallest booties you can find. Spend a lot of time on your custom bulk head. Make sure you sit as far forward in the boat that you can comfortably. Once you do that you will have arguably the most custom boat for your size you can buy. I am 6 foot with 10.5 feet, and the boat fits me like a glove.
