a couple of reasons to look at a center cockpit design…

L,G, & M with a needful read on the economics of blogging, collateral damage, and in the “Just another scary record to ignore” department…

I’ll be honest and say that I’ve never been a big fan of center cockpit designs. Part of it is that they’re, to my eye at least, mostly ugly and have wheel steering.

Which is not to say that some center cockpit boats have some advantages.

For instance, take a look at the head on an S2 and you’ll see an awesome sit down shower arrangement that just might be the best head design in a monohull in terms of practicality.

Not bad for a thirty foot boat.

Another plus for center cockpit designs is that their layout makes it easy to throw on a junk rig without destroying the interior accommodation. Point of fact, I spent a few hours looking at various center cockpit designs and most of them would easily work as a junk or lug rig.
