Most Nor'seas are simple sloops, so no inner stay to worry about. Only a few boats, that I know of, have cutter rigs, which owners added in later. I have shipped water in the cockpit, and did find it startling at first, but when you think about the small cockpit and how much weight the water actually is, its not all that bad. But like I said in my previous post, larger cockpit drains would be nice. One boat has added higher cockpit coamings... another good idea for this boat.

And yeah, to get into a Lyle Hess design, the Nor'sea is a great economical choice.
