Best Frame for smaller boat

I've got a 13'6" NRS E. It requires a frame 60"wide by 74" long. What do you think is the best frame for this boat. I still want to carry a dry box and cooler as well. I've been looking at the DRE Gunnison and a few of the NRS models.

for my Mini-Max (10'6") I have a frame from Whitewater Machine Works. It's a sweet little three bay and I sit over my drop bag (cause I haven't found a drybox the right size yet) and then a Canyon Cooler 55 sits up front.

the pictures, however, show an old yeti...though that's not at all the point of this discussion...but if you have extra time on your hands (like me) then you can also look at the frame discussion over at https://www.mountainbuzz.com/forums/...son-95979.html
