Agree with all the above and have all installed except any windlass
on my 32' contessa.
I mounted a small folding seat that sits in the companionway
under the dodger
...great at night and in poor weather
;warm ,safe and cozy and it bolts down so I can even take short naps in it.I use a large poncho over any other required gear
that can be thrown off in a hurry but funnels the engine
heat below me and makes cold watches comfortable.
If sailing,a cup of tea on the gimballed stove underneath allows sailing in your underwear.
A bunge will pull the tiller to port and a 1/8 line through a small block leads to a camcleat under the dodger
that a tug will get Houdini going to starboard. Total cost for this setup including seat ,fittings ,poncho and tea bags under $100.
If you are considering something like this spend some time figuring out where your feet will go as you will need them to to keep yourself from being pitched down below if you are slamming into any seas;Mine rest comfortably on a corner of the chart table and the other on the galley
countertop.I suppose one could rig some sort of rope
stirrups or quick release seatbelt to keep the nodding sailor from waking up with a broken nose at o'dark thirty.
