Sailmonkey has it figured out.
Sitting on the low side isn't going to materially change the level of heel on a cruising boat.
With our monohull
, when on watch offshore
, I'd sit in the beanbag propped against the forward bulkhead of the cockpit behind the dodger
. Perfect spot!
, you can toss it anywhere that looks like a good place.
We used to put ours on top of the anchor
windlass! With feet up on the bow pulpit we could look down over the sides of the bowsprit
and enjoy the breeze.
No matter where I placed it, when I got up for any reason, within seconds it had been taken by our cat !
