Now I get your point. I didn't realize you were objecting to an actual deck penetration into the cabin. I agree, that sounds undesirable. Sort of like leaving a foredeck hatch open, which I recall you trying to say.

Ours run from the mast base, over a window that you wouldn't stand on, though a deck organizer and then into a tunnel that exits inside the dodger.

Technically, the lines run through a molded ditch in the cabin top and a piece of fiberglass is screwed down on top to make it flush with the rest. I've never taken than cap off, I bet its filthy in there.
