Have you tried raising the waterline?

Just kidding!

Actually, your idea to try a "wooden strip" on the cabin side is a good one. This is usually called an "eyebrow" trim, and is very effective at reducing the "visual height" of a coachroof.

The designer of our boat employed that trick, and it works fairly well. I once saw a low-maintenance (no exterior teak trim) version of our boat and I was surprised how tall the coachroof seemed without it.
