I have been out sailing in the 350 and racing with the "boat pitching and heeled over 20 degrees"... Single handed at times as well. It is a blast! No problem at all. We ofetn sail with a bunch of us on board with kids too. Plenty of room for all in the safety and security of the cockpit. without the table. I couldn''t imagine having to walk arournd the darn thing at every tack and just moving about the cockpit. Edson makes a table for the Diamond Pedestal hat folds up out of the way. I will add that next year.
