Slippin' and a sliddin' might have something to do with the lack of the dome's popularity.
They have appeared on various cruising boats over the years. Moitessier had one on Joshua and Blondie Hasler had one on Jester.
Presuming you want dome so that you can stay below and still see what is going on around you ? Read up on Hasler, he was the master of dry sailing. He boasted that when he did the Trans Atlantic Single Hander in Jester he didn't go out on deck once and completed the crossing in his dressing gown and slippers. Jester was a junk rigged timber folkboat.
