What is kind of funny about the bow in for privacy..... at a recent YC get together, granted about 80-90% PB's vs SB's, most are backed in, so one can get into the boat, see who is on the back deck, talk to them etc. So backing in could also be "more Friendly" if in a YC away from home port get together too!
In the end, as I think I alluded in my first post, no real right or wrong in reality, ALL the points given must be accounted for.
She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
