Overall, I found that the deck plan is clean and functional. Its ergonomics provide comfortable positions from which to winch, drive, or lounge. You can sit in the cockpit and enjoy good back support, and you can stretch out along the full-length seats into which the traveler is set flush. When sailing the boat flat, the crew will often sit up on the wide coaming; when the boat's heeled, they'll slide out onto the side deck. Cockpit seat tops feature inboard lips that can retain cushions and provide good footrests. A 15-inch-high bridgedeck stands as a buttress against any possible downflooding, and the wide-open transom will drain any shipped water instantly. It also provides a large space for a life raft, and it can be closed off with a removable athwartships seat.
