Center cockpit or aft cockpit?

I have a CC Cheoy Lee. At 36 feet it has much better accomodations and storage than all the aft cockpit boats I looked at in that size. (Did not find an aft cockpit boat with an aft cabin that was usable for anything but sail storage. (Dislike coffins)Salon is a bit smaller will admit but makes up for it with wonderful aft cabin. It also has a hard windshield that is necessary in rough weather. Passage through is low but have learned to duck - this avoids the common problem of the boat being too high. With a CC docking can be a challange but what boat isn''t. And you are closer to the bow and not that far from the stern. Also for a ketch it has the mizzen aft of the cockpit not in it like Pearson 365 etc.
