It's interesting to note that the two posts expressing the least desire to an enclosure are from Washington and British Columbia. We do some latitude cruising with the seasons, but we are homeport Floridda sailors. There is no way that we would find comfort bakimg in an open cockpit while at anchor after a day's cruise. We keep splash guards/side panels that keep out the spray or funnel in a breeze depending on their set. There is nothing impure about your passive ability to control the temperature in the cockpit! If you don't need it,- Great! If you have an addition that improves your use of the boat.- Better! 'take care and joy, Aythya crew
