To be agreeable I will do so with donradcliffe on the green house effect.
I have knocked out my windows and it is now cold as hell in here as well as outside. Don't thank me for ending the green house effect I did it for myself.
But really I see you point about good ventilation.
My experience as a monohull
sailor having seen some nasty crashing confused seas (this applies to me for what I want or don't want). I can do without the large glass exposure. Can it be done right yes it can. Do I want to pay for it nope. If Im not sure it was done right or can stand up to a thrashing I don't want to be there to test it.I sailed with an owner on a well built boat. We got quite a thrashing. At some point the guy told the crew he had put a weak link at the end of the stearing chain as explained the chain had broken several times and he felt that if it broke at the end it would be easier to fix. He is right maybe uhh anyway. You can bet in dead of night coming cown the side of a wave when I leaned down on that wheel
I was thinking about that weak link.
As a multihull
sailor tri's and cats are more bouyant. Although I have never sailed in truly heavy weather
in one these it was pointed out to me that the bouyancy and handling can effect the shipping
. I again although skeptically agree. My tri never ships water in a 4' sea with some space in frequencey down wind
or broad reach I watch the mono hulls plunge while the tri sits happily skipping over the mess.
If you happen to have an extra space heater
let me know
