I've never seen a sailboat that you could steer from inside one of those. Maybe if you had a remote control for an autopilot. Otherwise, you're going to have to go out to do any steering, and then you're going to want a dodger.

It's an interesting idea, but I suspect that in practical use it would not work out as well as the theory might predict.
