I run a 5 bay frame on my 16 NRS kodiak its alittle under 120. Bays are front to back= dry box-rowing bay-cooler with flip seat bracket-dry box-drop bag w/table over it. My father runs a very similar setup with a 6 bay setup that is right at 120. front to back=dry box-rowing bay-cooler w/flip seat-dry box-drop bag-drop bag w/table. When he has a passenger he leaves the first drop bag empty so they sit on his table and put there feet in the empty bay. You could even set the back dry box back another bay and let the passenger sit on it. And for an 18 footer running a 7 bay 140inch may be an option. The picture shows my fathers boat with the a 5 bay so just imagine another 16inch inbetween his rear dry box and table.

Hey, if you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it "guaranteed", I will. I got spare time.

The con is simply excessive weight. I enjoyed the rigging of a rented 18' pig on my fist grand trip too. Then i realized how much less work it is to row a lighter boat. Rockets sure rig easy though, but don't forget buckets and vittle vaults.
