jgrebe shares good info - very stable and forgiving boat, but can be a real pig if it gets overloaded. Here's my cougar partially unloaded so you can see the set up better. I have just enough room between the tubes (about 16") to drop coolers in lengthwise, and then I have a suspended floor below my seat. If you don't need two coolers, you can run a cooler and drybox, or action-packer, or whatever. I prefer the floor in the rower's compartment, especially on the Grand (depending on time of year), to limit splash - even with the floor it is a very splashy boat since you sit so much closer to the water. I run 10.5' oars and my frame is about 84" from oarlock to oarlock.
