G'day JT,
I like the idea of the bump to ww. The only objection is the extra
width of the hull and difficulty if needed to be taken apart for
towing. Enclosing the cockpit is a mixed blessing as it moves the
steering station towards the centre and slighltly increases windageand
weight. I also looked at flaring the inside of the lw hull to increase
the bury of the crossbeams and give a 3/4 bunks for extras at anchor
or inshore cruising. I have had a go at having the bunks across with
feat under the outside seats and thus extending the saloon by about a
meter or so. It means finding extra space somewhere else for the lockers.
