I'm in if a 12 footer counts as mini enough.

Just sold my storm last fall, but we had a canyon 55 in it, perfect fit and wide enough to make an awesome seat in place of a bench.

I have a storm with a Canyon 55 and a custom dry box from Artisan Welding in Flagstaff. Supporting the locals with Canyon and Artisan. The dry box is about the same size as the Canyon.
I have only used the frame set up on 2 San Juan trips. We usually self support R2 it, with bigger water.
I am usually packed for 2. On the Juan, we had a partner 2 burner stove, small propane, kitchen for 4 and some food in the dry box. food/beer in the cooler. We still ran 2 Aire landing pads. For such a small boat, we can carry a ton of stuff.
If I get on the Salt this year, I will most likely self support R2 again. So much more fun.

I'm a fan of small gear boats. My max 12 is a little bigger but same concept. I'm running dual 65 qt coolers.

What kind of dry box are you running under your seat? I used a high back on a crossbar right now, but I've been considering adding another crossbar and mounting my seat to a drybox, which is what it looks like you've done.

It's just a drop bag with a piece of MDO over the top with the seat mounted to it. I will take some other pictures soon.
