I have a number of hatches that help, and the saloon and the aft cabin stay cool...but it's weird at dock when the A/C is keeping fore and aft chilly and having very little effect on the pilothouse itself.

I have screens, but I need to screw in snaps for them, particularly on the west side. I'm going to perhaps insulate the roof more, as well. When I'm sailing, it's fine, and the engine doesn't heat it up at's just the sun.
