Re: Ready To Go Back In?

Bubble,

It was one of my deal breakers with every boat I look at no matter which size. If it isnt safe/ easy to walk up the gunwhale and work on the deck it goes off the list. It isnt a functions of size either. Youd be suprised how many 35-40 Ffts have very little walking room let alone foot placement or you have to squeeze or go outside the shrouds. My friends 3 year old Hunter 38 falls into this category. It is awkward leading his cockpit going forward.

The first indication is the lack of sensible egress out of the cockpit and the first step. Do you have to squeeze by the coachroof?

A stable platform makes all the difference in the world when it comes to safety
