Looking at pics of the HR 40cc I think it is about the same as my Bene. My Hot tub as some call it is deeper than you might think. The cockpit/tub sits over the engine room.

Motion comfort has not been a issue for me and the admiral and that was what started this conversation.

Fair Winds,
Gottcha...if it works for you thats cool.

You did say you could stand upright in your engine room though so I assumed the deck above was also the same as the other. Do you have special drains for the cockpit since it sets so deep,

Comparing to a Hunter in height, the Hunters all have elevated aft cockpits as most over the 38 have queen size berths aft although you can stand up all the way back. That actually supports my thinking as the Hunter rear cockpits are definately higher than most aft cockpits.

I am not abject to a CC I like the roominess of them. Most have two heads which I dont need , but I could convert one for storage. We have to decide which bets fit us a a couple, do we want the huge berth or more room in the salon. Its a matter of where we spend most of our time when below.
