Tower. All kidding aside. My 12'skiff years ago had : homemade push pole and brackets, bench seat that items slid under out of the way, cooler seat up front with 1/2 for dry storage and 1/2 fish storage (in a heavy garbage bag, a Captain Lemay tip), 2 built in vertical rod holders in the rear bench seat. My baitwell was a 5 gallon bucket with a bubbler and anything else was on the deck. Being only 12', you stayed put in one spot in the boat. My sons 13' whaler is set up similarly.
