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!!
