Great post Billy....

One of the first things I noticed before I bought my boat was the absence of overhead hand rails...I plan on installing them some day..

Of course my boat was not designed with passagemaking in mind but there is no real quarter births with their associated lee cloths either..and begin fiddles on main saloon table...fiddles are adequate in galley at 1 1/2 "

I honestly hadn't thought of the buttoned down hatch ventilation problum untill you mentioned it...( no experience off shore so I dont know what I dont know.. )

Great topic..IS your boat still up in NC or there abouts?
