Center cockpit or aft cockpit?

Been there done that In fact I used to own a 35 coronado cc The good news is they sail well. Visibility is nomally better than a aft cockpit and you will generally stay dry.As mentioned in other Responses placing the boat in a slip can be a chore I backed in all the time an found it can be pretty hairy because you will be too far from stem or stern to secure lines. I did manage to single hand my boat,but it can sure get interesting in a hurry on a windy day.I sold my cc and bought an aft cockpit I feel more secure about handling the new boat.Oh did I say cc boats generally have great layouts below mine had queen size berths at both ends and had lots of room below on rainy days in the salon to play cards or work on a pc even while a nice meal was being prepared in the galley good luck with whatever you choose and good sailing
