A bridgedeck build looks do-able on a T30. There are no lockers or other obstructions in front of the cockpit to get in the way on the starboard side galley model. The aft galley version has an icebox hatch in the area that might need to be sealed. Even a large bridgdeck would not reduce the total volume of the cockpit much so other mods may be needed, but a more experenced sailor than I could give you a better idea what total volume of open space is correct for a 30 foot boat.

It's not so much the volume unless it's very large, but the drain time. I've read 30 seconds is about ideal. Plug the drains and fill it with a hose and time it to get an idea. If more drainage is needed, and I would guess yes, the easiest solution it to put a drain right through the transom. The Tartan has the well gainst the transom so it's pretty easy to install an extra drain. Only one side is needed as the main drains will handle what's left. With a flap over the outlet it shouldn't let water in.

Actually, it is both the volume and the drain time. If the cockpit is sufficiently large, it could cause serious problems. There is a recommended maximum size for a cockpit on a bluewater boat as a percentage of the boat's volume, but I don't remember what the formula is.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I don't think a Tartan 30 cockpit is too large for the size of the boat, especially with the addition of the bridge deck. That was what I was thinking when I said it was drain time not volume. I do agree a cockpit volume can be too large a percentage of the boat's displacement in some cases, a problem that is worse on smaller boats.

Well I tried to talk the seller down a bit and he told me he wont sell his boat to me and that I shouldn't contact him anymore which is weird but whatever some people get emotional...

So back to the drawing board I suppose I'd prefer a boat with a diesel engine and a wheel (though a tiller seems to be more seaworthy by most accounts).

Also maybe something a bit larger that Tartan was only the second boat I looked at anyway.
