Re: Trying another tack... Looking for the right boat near Vancouver, BC.
Not too keen on the pilothouses to be honest... My understanding is that they are not great in high winds, and there is the risk of serious water entry if you lose a window.
Plus I don't think trying to look over the top sounds like too much fun.
Boats like the Aloha 32 or CS 33/36T already have enough headroom for me anyways.
Check out the 316 and 353 online. They do not expose a great deal to wind. I have sailed a 353 it would make a very good liveaboard.
