To clarify, it was just the foot well I was thinking of lining. The tender would need a flap in its transom to avoid an impossibly high bridge-deck. My Precision's cockpit is about 7' long and completely uncluttered apart from the tiller and the flap at the stern that shields the fuel can. The main-sheet is attached to the transom. Unfortunately, the foot well is about 18" wide, too narrow to make a realistic beam for a tender. I like the canoe-stern idea.
I'll pass on one other thought; flotation could be supplied by tying air-filled fenders under the thwarts. You'd have them on board in any case.
Happy sailing, Alex, and my apologies to all those thinking this hasn't much to do with AR.
