cataraft side rail seats

has anyone put side rail seats on their cat frame. kind of like it was a paddle cat. most people have seats on coolers ext. but if a guy just wanted to take some people on a day trip this would allow him to bring more people. like a bracket off the frame side rail with a flat seat covered in foam maybe. you would just sit over the tube with legs in. ware you could only seat 2 you could seat 4. any ideas?

I had two DRE flip seats that straddled the the cross bar at the front and rested on the cross bar just behind and toward the rower. They worked brilliantly.

Tractor(NRS) is usually 7" x 7.5" and marine(action/tempress) is 5" x 5" and these are drilled for both.

With u-bolts, I put plywood mounts on a double rail frame for those swivel fishing seats, to take old (age 80-85) people down class II. Their feet were inside the frame and they had a backrest to steady them.

Worked really well.
