Re CAbin

Point taken, but a yottie is more or less working for pleasure (delivery is an exception possibly) so they aren't battling those conditions day in day out for weeks on end unless they get really unlucky. They cerrtainly are not governed by the Health and Safety at Work, the HSE or specific company regulations.

So in otherwords the fkkrs are enjoying themselves ish and a certain amount of adrelinine is being created and this helps any discomfort therefore so Cabins are useful on wokboats

So to answer your question I'll take a Techno if its not too rough (F7) but I will have a Delta with built in SRIMEC if it's rough . But if I am being paid I'll drive whatever has got a ticket

and If I am sailing then I'd happily go anywhere in a Sigma 38

Many yots have some form of sprayhood to keep the worst of the weather/spray off the crew. But 'tis true that sailing is a much more at one with the elements experience than most powerboating. Doesn't make it any more pleasant in the rain though.
Obviously don't understand the meaning of "tongue in cheek" then!!!!

Seriosly though - you almost never see a yacht with any sort of protection at all. I know they have to muck about with lines and sheets and lazyjacks etc etc but it does make you wonder!!!
There are quite a few within the Solent, Fishers, Nauticats, Hallberg Rasseys, Westerly Konsort Duo to name but a few

Fishers and Nauticats aren't yachts - they are motorsailers - most yachties frown down their noses at them!!! Not me though - would love a Fisher 37!!!

Nauticats sail very well - better than they motor. And for the yachties who turn their nose up at them... when they are tucked up in the cramp bunk under the cockpit of their 45' yacht think of those in thier comfy double beds with full headroom - and that is on a 33' boat! Very very well built as well.

I think

They are very nice in the water and respond very well to the wind, basic inside but they sail well. and they seem to hold their value fairly well

Further info might be found from Kitten
