If you cheat the front frame forward 12"-18", you could hang a drop bag between the two frames, and either drop a cooler in, or fill with assorted gear or rocket boxes, and cover with a table.

Also, you might be surprised just how narrow a footwell a boatman needs. That is, you may be able to put a box on your floor either side of your feet. Mine's just 14" but is plenty wide enough.

Army surplus, online, gun show. Measure your space under and next to the seat and see if they would fit. Standard 20mm rockets are 19x 8 1/4x 14.5 inches. They can be stored on any of the three axis if it would make them work. You'll have to get creative to maximize space on that frame.

Thanks for the great replies.

Unfortunately my seat frame height is only about 7.5 in above the floor panel.

Need to look at some other options. Could definitely get a custom box made. My leaning is to fit the floor section in right behind the front section. This will be cheap to make and puts the heaviest weight in the right place. By tying it down to the floor from a welded bracket it will make it also easy to access throughout the day.

I'll have a look for other Ammo boxes as well.
