Nothing will keep me from my cuppa. Have cooker. Toilet. Large bed. TV stereo CDAnd DVD. I can go exploring in comfort. Times that I remember are many. I spent a lovely few days inside wall barrow bay. Down the Jurassic Coast. Was on my way to Portland but tucked in there for a cuppa and stayed nearly 3 days. Done sone diving. Beach combing. Sun bathing. BBQ. Swimming. Never got to Portland

7m is tough for a decent cabin. 9m seems the sweet spot for a cabin rib.

AMF does have a 7m and it does have some interesting ideas. The outside of their cabins are actually over the tubes. Some 7m enclosers are more like standing in a closet, would not be my choice. Need width.

Remember them well. When we did the plug for that cabin we couldn't get it out of the shed. We had to take it off the trolley and I towed it out with my nissan patrol

Biff, is the entire top of the cabin "walk on" or is there a sweet spot near the bow?

No walk anywhere on it, it's a light layup with foam lattice work stiffening, when I was doing the yacht racing stuff there were two guys up there spotting the line and letting out or pulling in anchor lines for the start line, once the cabin is scribe to the tubes we layup over the tubes , put the cabin back on then bond the two together, makes it strong, you can run with the tube flat and you can't rip them off because you'll have to rip the cabin off as well

I understand. There must be access to the bow for anchoring though - I guess you scuttle along the tube using the rail for a handhold? If that's the case, there must be a stiffer section at the bow to stand/kneel on?
