The cabin top, on which one spends time furling the main, has, as the builder points out in its brochure, "partly nonskid surface on the coachroof." Those slippery spots on the cabin top, surrounded by aggressive tread that give a false sense of security, are a pet peeve because one often puts his weight on them when he's least expecting to fall. However, the cabin top is broad and uncluttered, so in comparison with many boats, there's also less to stumble over, and the area is cleared even more by low-profile hatches and by halyards and reefing lines that are led aft. Deck organizers lead these control lines through conduits to banks of six clutches, port and starboard, that are just forward of the primary winches on the coaming and accessible from the helm. The mainsheet, also on the cabin top, can be led outboard to one of these winches as well.
