Re: Halyards to cockpit?

Think the take aways are:
1.Fallard is right- bringing everything aft increases safety and comfort
2.Jon is right- if done must be done correctly and systems maintained
3.Autopilots are great- but must be sized correctly,if going off shore have appropriate spares and serviced routinely

Before builting my new boat looked at a huge number of vessels with hull portlights. Had occassion to blow out lights on the LEEWARD side in a knockdown once. Agree some may feel they are stylish. I think they have no place on a boat that sails in any kind of weather unless over built in the extreme.
