Re: Wauquiez 38

The good news about a lot of tropical destinations (depending on time of year, of course) is that there's usually a good breeze. An open hatch (esp fwd opening) in 15 knots of wind can create quite a gale below.. keeping things cool. Since you're also often at anchor this works well.

The opening ports on cabin sides do help, of course, but what sticks in my mind most about those is the chinese fire drill every night when a rain squall comes in to close them all, and then reopening when the rain passed. Many people add rainshields to these types of ports to help in that regard.

In lower breezes the various 'windscoop' devices also help to funnel breezes below for cooling.

It looks like most, if not all, of the Wauquiez boats that I have seen pictures of do not have opeining portlights. How is the ventilation on these boats? I know the 38 has two large hatches, one over the vee berth and one in the saloon. Can anyone tell me of their experiences in tropical and warm areas? Thx.
