Re: Production Boats and the Limits

Those types of large, flush ports have been very common for years on new models from all builders. Even builders you don't disparage. Many years on catamarans.

That type of dual helm setup is only for a certain style of relationship. It works for the couple in the picture, with one steering and the other relaxing.

However, if that was our helm setup...
