Re: Pilothouses

I like Pompanette helm seats but damn they're steep...

Re: Pilothouses

I love my pilothouse! I can see through it from the cockpit just fine. I think she looks just fine even at 38'.

Lovely boat, and the kids are truly beautiful. The dog however ...

Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Thanks! Those kids ARE mighty cute. Guess mastiff's aren't for everyone. Certainly not for most boats!
I suppose it's a face only a proud owner could love...
Some people would probably say the same about my boat too.

Re: Pilothouses

I think the dog looks great. Of course, I had a bull terrier for 15 years, so I obviously prefer the sort of dog that looks like it fell off the side of a cathedral.

Re: Pilothouses

Pilothouse models that have flush decks forward and a "sunken" pilothouse are able to maintain a low profile. To my eye, they look handsome.

This Nauticat 42 is a great looking boat, IMHO.

Re: Pilothouses

Depends on your tolerance to cold. For me, it would need a very large heater...

Re: Pilothouses

I was chatting with a friend (who has lots of inside passage cruising experience) about my pilot house conversion project and my eventual journey north. I was expressing concern about the performance penalty that I might suffer when under sail (due to increased windage, higher CG, larger non folding propeller etc.....). He agreed that I will suffer some sailing performance penalty. He added that it will be a penalty only 12% of the time.
