Such styling both gives and takes away. The saloon roof is high, and climbing onto it to furl the mainsail is awkward, but once there, you're working from a position of authority, well above the boom. That same high roof provides a base for waist-high grabrails, a boon when going forward or when stepping aboard through the lifeline gate. As the roofline dips aft, it continues as the cockpit coaming, creating a sheltered area forward, with deep seat backs. The coaming also wraps around the stern, providing good seating behind the helm.
