Is standing a huge issue for you? That's really the main question. I'm sure there's tons of opinion for both sides, but ultimately, you're the guy to please here. And, FTR, I can attest to the hot sun here. I moved my boat last weekend 17 nm, and let me tell you, it was h-o-t. From Anclote to Hudson at less than 6knots made for quite the red face even wearing a hat.
