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.
I recommended this to Vinnie. For us, the hatch mount is for tarpon in bigger water and the forward mount is for sight fishing in skinny, protected waters.

Om my Caimen I’m relegated to one mount point. Too pointy to slide forward.

I only take it off in high wind situations so line distance from my stripping hand to the deck / mat is shorter so not to fight line blowing off the bow. With that said, when it’s reallly windy, fish usually aren’t as spooky

My wife and I met with Adam for the final 🤔build sheet. An absolute gentleman is Adam as well everyone I’ve met at ECB. They have an outstanding staff and Kevin is the epitome of a leader. They truly do make one feel comfortable and welcomed with their opinions.
Great job Josh in getting me to where I am. Jay, your help was invaluable!!
👍👍
I’ll post pictures as I get them from Adam.
