I'm in the midst of my weekly "search" for a cruising vessel. I've been coming acrossed a lot of pilothouse designs. I've never sailed on a pilothouse boat, but I'm intrigued.
Can anyone help me out with pros and cons for cruising (bluewater, island hopping, etc.) with a pilothouse design?
Here's what I've got so far:
Pros: More cabin space, well-lighted cabin space, dry shelter for wet passages, added secuity (?), anything else?
Cons: More weight (?), less forward visibility, anything else?
