It is exactly the old Dag Mid-Way (which was spelled with a dash, as they wanted to promote that it was mid-way between a SOT and SIK). RTM bought em out and kept the design, tweaked it.
It is longer, but it is not narrower. It is signficantly fuller, especially toward the ends which gives the RTM Midway (no dash) a lot more volume/storage and weight bearing capacity than the Disco. It also has less rocker and a number of fantastic safety features which, sadly, most yakfishers seem not to worry about.
Until their Hobie cracks and starts sinking, lol.
You seem to have a problem with the tankwell, but I can assure you I have no problems carrying my customized cooler - which is plenty roomy and trolls two rods to boot...
BTW, your/my Pro both have sensible curved wells, and this cooler fits well in it, as well as in my Disco and in the new Midway. This is really not an issue for even the minimally creative. Proper strapping will keep the cooler secure and level I can assure you.
The cooler above is made from the common red Igloo and it will fit easily in any tankwell, even on flat back decks. The only addition to this old pic is that I now recommend drilling two holes on each side for SS eyelets as attachment points.
Take care, Krash....
