Re: What do you think about a pilothouse sailboat
I've been told that my designs , down to 31 feet , look better with the pilot house than without it. I am embarrassed about how long I sat out in the rain without a pilot house before I clued in. I wouldn't be without one. In the inverted position , the buoyancy of the pilot house is the equivalent of adding thousands of pounds to the keel, in terms of ultimate stability. On a steel boat ,the pilot house can easily be as strong as the rest of the boat
