Yeah when I say small I mean closer to 7 than 9m so Neil's would be ideal

For a cabin rib something subtle like leopard skin or tiger stripes

Thanks Michael Tilley
Michael,

When you say cabin, do you mean a full Wheelhouse or an enclosure for berths/heads? Obviously they are very different concepts.

My requirements:

Somewhere dry to store lots of kit. If big enough to sleep in, better still.
Good protection for electronics and PAX.
As noted above, a good working position at the bow for anchoring, etc.
Space for a Heads of some sort.
Space for a hob.
Lots of space to fit electronics.
Good visibility at the helm
Good ergonomics at the helm
Lots of handholds

I say, steady on old chap, if you want to go marrying him there are a few obstacles that you should be aware of, for a start his follicular extrusions are of a certain hue
