How do you like the 8.5 oars? I have the same oar towers on my frame and can't decide what length to get.

The ammo cans are a nice touch.

Cody-Do your knuckles ever hit the ammo cans next to or in front of you?

no I haven't hit them. for my knuckles to hit the ones by my seat i would have to drop my hands lower then my thighs... and for the ones in front of me I would have to be pulled out of my seat to hit them.. Granted I am fairly short at 5'7".

I have an old small 10.5 NRS raft with a similar speedrail frame with a captains chair and 8' oars and it's pretty tight when things get busy. To me that looks like a lot of sharp edges and a high center of gravity. I would suggest trying to use some of the space in your foot well by either making a drop floor to strap boxes to, or look at some of the river co's that sell drop hangers for ammo cans and hang between the bars. I run a 6 gallon water jug on its side next to me on one side and my rig bag on the other side so I have plenty of room to ship my oars if needed.

Just my .02 cents but we all get to do it our own way.
