There is A Watertight Agreement.

It will be legally redrawn by Sue, Grabit and Fleece.

And reviewed by numerous committees. With addenda. And minutes. And review dates.

They can still slap an ASBO on you in Italy. (With a cappucino on the side).

Years ago I read that warships in WWII had an effective solution to redirect the wind on the bridge. In front of the bridge, on 'breast hight' they placed a tilted sheet of metal. It had the effect that the wind went over the heads of the people standing on the bridge. So nothing glass in front of you, just a redirecting device out of sight.

If there is a country where this knowledge from the past can be retrieved to provide a solution for our boats it is the United Kingdom.

Regards,

Might also start perusing the BMW motorcycle windscreens. They do a great job of directing flow away from the pilot. Designed for a higher speed, but they're still relatively small for their effectiveness.
