I think it depends on whether it was built as a pilothouse or the ph was added. I have a lot deckspace but my was built as a ph.
In Pacific Northwest
where I'm based there's a lot of current
, islands and reefs
from the sailboat means watching depth
and location very closely, making sure I'm not drifting into trouble. The tender
on the other hand takes me comfortably into ares where I want to be and I can troll at a nice slow speed. If I'm going longer distances I anchor
nearby and drop the tender.
If you are in an area where you can fish
without that constraint the sailboat might do it. Look at lots of boats and spend as much time as ypu can hanging out down below to get a feel for how it might feel to live on the boat.
