I think that the place for the working winches just aside the companion way is somewhat awkward...
But a beautiful boat.
No it is not awkward. They have a long experience with this type of boats and the solution is used in other several fast boats of this type.

You have to consider that the main is a direct one, not needing winches and that the boat has a tiller so with the extension out you can reach the winches with the tiller on one hand not losing the control of the boat or needing the automatic pilot
