Re: What do you think about a pilothouse sailboat

I am living aboard my CE38 in the Algarve. It is not normally so hot as in Greece. When not sailing, I keep a tarp over the boom and wheelhouse to keep most of the sunshine out. The boat is well insulated as it is intended for the Baltic, so that keeps the heat in or out as the case may be.
It sails in light winds as well as any other 1975 design. Try to get a demo sail on the one that you have seen.
