I have a mini-me and simply run 2-54" cross bars with side rails that I ordered individually vs a specific frame. Used the cross bars to make a bench with a couple of cutting boards across as a platform. Found the seat got in the way of being able to aggressively high side. Foot bars are overrated on little boats bc you can just wedge/ brace your feet against the tubes. Throw a 3rd bar in set up to create a bay, if needed. I sit up front with my body weight in front of the center part of the boat and row it like a big water cat. Keeps the boat better balanced. Hope that gives you some ideas....
