8's here too - primarily because that was what was recommended here on the Buzz.

What do people think about adding a stern seat on the Storm? Am I completely nuts? The boat is easily big enough for 3 people. Maybe not all fishing at the same time, but a stern seat would be great for an extra passenger. I ran some class 3 stuff on the weekend with my son sitting on the back tube and a heavier adult up front on the cooler. It never felt overloaded or unbalanced.

I have the same question but I think if you go much further forward you are going to sacrifice handling.

Would love to see a photo of how someone rigged this... (I am sure someone out there has done it.

With a cooler+ adult as far forward as possible in front bay, oar towers as far forward as you can get them without hitting front passenger in the back (too hard) and lightest passenger on stern seat it could be OK. I don't think both passengers could fish at the same time easily, but for just cruising from riffle to riffle it could be good. Maybe.

So I rowed my storm tonight with three people. One on the cooler in front of me and one sitting on the tube on the back.. I don't have a fishing frame yet. It handled just fine.. I was a little stern heavy but my seat was set back with lots of room in front of me.. and I didn't have nearly enough beer in the cooler up front. I don't think balancing it will be an issue... two fisherman with 9' fly rods might be an issue but shorter fishing rods or when I'm bass fishing we use emrods. Which are ideal..

8 foot oars it is then. I looked on Neff's FB page and really love the pictures. Now I just need to keep an eye out for some money to get a frame and oars! Super stoked!

Here's my Storm that I built last year. Gary's frame, 8.5ft oars, Yeti 45 and Engel 30qt dry box. Plus 6 gallons of water and gear for 4 days for my wife and I. Handled Class III and IV water like a champ, and was super fun!
