We have an older Seatiger which is a manual horizontal design. I think the newer horizontals are somewhat smaller that the Seatiger - but you'd only have to whack your kneecap ONCE on the windlass unit while messing with a sail on the foredeck, to decide the best solution is the thing with the lowest profile. I didn't walk normally for about six weeks...So my vote would laso be a vertical.
