That may be a poor design but from what I have seen yours is the exception, not the rule. ALL IP's for example.... I think the Ailerons Hoyt setup also swings over the forward hatch. Basically every 30-40 foot stay-boom I've ever seen swings over the forward hatch - where else is it going to swing - unless your foredeck is Very Long. I'm not saying that makes them instant death traps but something to consider.
