Re: Yacht Question From Author
I can't get the picture of the yacht in question to open.
It sounds like you are referring to the coachroof, which is the raised part of the deck that allow for a higher headroom inside the cabin.
Yes, the steps from the cockpit into the cabin is the companionway.
The raised area around the cockpit may be referred to as the coaming, although, most use the term to refer to an accent piece on top of what is the coaming.
People ordinarily sit on deck in the cockpit. Although, in some new boats this has been enlarged, as on ours, and the term 'deck salon' has been coined.
I hope I got the questions correct, I couldn't see the pic.
