...LESPILOT,the "free flow" pictures posted by DOWNUNDER of the cabin
useful. I love the fact the Captain
is central,high up,can see all corners,big glass windows in front,,,and totally protected. On my learning
curne,still the hardest part is getting in and out of tight marinas
. Vis really important...
Also so much more relaxed on open ocean keeping an eye out..sp. at night.
my boat feels like an aircraft carrier,(30'beam ) Wheel
on Sboard side,so need some one on front port side to guide. Dual steering
would help. As i said prior ,reason i liked the antares cats. To be honest ,free flow looks even better. I don't quite understand the point of having a exposed steering
position on ANY machine going anywhere significant. Kinds like you flying out front with goggles on ! Just don't see the point of being cold and miserable. Same time,other extreme is lots of cover and no vis. Seems like some cats (outremers) designed still for out and out ocean racers,with the helm
right out the back in the open. Might have appealed to me 30 yrs ago...
Basic problem is,any cat you get ready built ,you are going to want to alter. If i had the time money
and technical expertise,i would love to get a custom build off a basic good design ...
