Re: Cockpit Centric Sailing
Sailboats are for sailing. Powerboats are for lounging!
Seriously, sailing is about the journey and power boating is about getting there and looking good. Sailing happens in the cockpit.
I guess that's the source of my question, Tim. The journey could be even better enjoyed by crew, kicking back in a safe place on deck. I'm not promoting getting there fast or looking good. Just a comfy seat on the deck.
It seems like a missed opportunity in boat design to me.
If I weren't trading my Harpoon 5.2 next month, I would have removed the front deck and built a wrap around cushion seating area.
