    Looks like forward and to one side visability from the helm may be seriously restricted.

    While working at the mast you're standing on a curved slope?

    Welcome,

    The superstructure seems pretty modern, but the hull is pretty standard, there's nothing wrong with it, but maybe needs a bit more something... like a reverse bow, it will give it a few more feet, more buoyancy up front, and look pretty mean...?

    NV44 SAILCAT...? :D

    Oh, there's a pretty good corner on the back platform that will hurt a few tenders.

    With every new cat design I see I start to appreciate Wharram's more...

    Thanks guys for the comments. I do welcome all the input.As for the reversed bow I can easy see that making both design and performance increases. I would have too make it and see how it would interact with interior head room for the fwd hull births. The idea for the aft platform is well noted and my latest model has a rounded interior corner to help from injury.
