Tips on my fishing frame setup

Hey gang,

I made this frame custom and wanted some input on functionality changes. I've since welded the front lean bar up and can really make about anything custom these days.
Some points of concern I have:
Tips on what you would do with the "storage space" under the rower seat? - make a full bench there or I can keep it open and weld a seat flange to the crossbar.
What sort of rear supports would you like to see for a fly fisherman in the back seat that wouldn't mess up the flow of the boat and being able to move around?

Would love to hear of any other nitpicks you have with it or any ideal frame pieces you would like to see that retailers have or haven't made to your liking yet.

I like a belly bar that straps only to the raft itself. I have a D ring on the inside front center. That way you can move side to side and get a knee on the tube to net fish.

How high on the thigh/leg does the front lean bar hit? Potential entrapment issue. Consider that in the design and application of the front & rear lean bars. Great choice in oars, though!
