I always have mine on the bow for fly fishing. I also have two deck studs for mounting the platform on the front hatch or right up on the bow. It's usually on the front hatch which leaves plenty of room up front for a line mat. When we are fishing super skinny, I'll put the platform up on the bow. It will help reduce the poling draft some. I'd also suggest having the legs shorter than the typical platform. I like about 12" to top of the platform. It makes stepping up and down much easier and much more stealthy by reducing the effort to step up or down versus the typical 15-16" step up/down.
