Wide Pulpits

This area is pretty tight on most monos and tris. Reaching the rode to attach a snubber or straightening a jammed anchor is a pain. Would a wider pulpit help?

(Not this specific way, just an example. Add a middle wire, side stanchions, and some sort of netting down low to keep from stepping through.)

Of course, the World Sailing Off-Shore Rule specifically forbids this...

... But since these boats are raced inshore, I'm quite sure the designer didn't care. A lot of the railings are missing (Farrier F-22).

If sailing off-shore, I would fill in the lower portion with netting secured to tight Dyneema lines so that I would not step through.

The more convensional Corsair F-24 looks like this:
