CD, in that case...I present to you
Giu,

I love the room in your cockpit. Very cool and lots of room to move around. It does need a cocpit table, though, and a couple of BBQ grills, some solar panels, a bimini, a dodger (want me to go on??!!! smile). Nothing I could not fix!!!

Only issue would be securing someone onto the floor for an overnighter... little bit open. It would require some ingenuity!!
I guess I could slap a little 5200 and some snatch blocks on that beautiful teak floor. Where is she slipped again??

SD if one is dumb enough to fall overboard thru my transom opening, then he either deserves it...or....doesn't even go on my boat...

Altough it seems a large open cockpit (it was designed like that for the purpose you so well know), it is rather difficult to fall overboard from it.

CD, the center hatch for the locker has rings for crew starpping and its where I strap my son's car seat when he sails with us., we even have an inflatable bed we attach to the hatch door for romantic night sleeps...

Don't be fooled by the idea large cockpits are dangerous, its exactly the opposite, and that BS about a big wave grabbing you and taking you...its also BS, a large cockpit has better places to grab, and manouver, and mainly allows you to fall in the boat, not in the water...by experience!!

CD - If I wanted a c400 I would have bought Norm Bernstein's a few years ago when it was for sale ..... you must remember Norm - I do love that gigantic walk around aft berth though

You need the hammack for that. Finally got one for my birthday. SHe said she got one the whole family can fit into. I thanked her (but think she missed the point)...

I think cockpit cushions are a great concept--for a harbor queen. Once you get under way, the damned things are a peril if they slip out from under you, or slip under your feet on the way forward and back, and then they take up room to store below...Pfah! Sorry, not for me. I'll take a couple of old throwable PFD's as pillows to be used as needed, forget the lawn furniture.

On the Valiant /vs/ the Catalina 400...one fast thing I see is that the cockpit sides slant a bit on the Valiant but they look dead vertical on the Catalina. Which is great for racing when no one is sitting, but totally wrong for folks sitting on the high side while in motion.

The little things like "gee, why is this cockpit so much more comfortable than that one was?" just don't mean anything until you've tried them on under sail--where "vertical" takes on new meanings and things like nice flat companionway steps are shown to be just the wrong way to do things.

Have you ever heard of snaps?
