I contacted a very experienced Dorado owner and he says "nix" on standing. I'd agree for the Paddleyak (no standing). Now it wouldn't be impossible to rig a simple outrigger that you could carry and deploy as needed, but that may not be your cup of ginseng...
I've seen another unit that uses PVC, a float and a ram ball mount. Actually I think it would be easier to buy a pool noodle, cut it in half, insert a 1/2 inch PVC pipe, eyelet at each end. Could use rope and bungies, or straps to positions a float tight to each side. Maybe a clip system. Something to think about.
I've really do think some kind of deck-stored, easily deployed sidefloat system would be ideal, preserve yak performance while allowing the narrowest of yaks to be made standable at your destination...
