OK dear reader. You've made it down to the bottom and still have money left over. It's time to shake the last few coin from your pocket. Frame Left are two possible options. The offset flange can lend leg room to the argument when attached away from the foot bay.
Not shown are the near infinite configurations of cross bay flanges. Be wary however that bigger is not better and going up in height will complicate the oar geometry. Going up in height also means it's the first thing to get rubbed of when you flip......and you Will Flip.
Or: A 2x10 dimension board makes a mighty fine seat when strapped sideways in the frame. Your Option

Padded Seats Are for Wusseys.
Now that I've managed to offend 45% of my audience. Padded seats are the first to go when the raft flips.
Padded seats are nulling the space in their proximety since cargo doesn't readily fit in, under and around the seat.
Padded seats break when you step on them. Padded seats obstruct the optimum rowing geometry.
Padded seats are a waste of time and money. The only legitiment reason for a padded seat is your wife or girlfriend
wants one and thereby making it a foregone conclusion.
Rowframe suggest Surplus Supply (Lincoln NE), Bass Pro, Cabelas, Ebay, Amazon and even the N folks.
Supporting that seat is a seat flange whereas the the seat is bolted to said flange with 4 qty. 5/16" HHCS.
Take note of the flange size. RowFrame offers flanges in 9x9 (default) and 12x12 footprints.
Rowframe also offers elevated seat flanges for various configurations. Read-On
