Yes, I understand the challenges for boating minus the side decks, and yes, I can see the difference between the Burger and the Hatt. Agreed that I overlooked the lack of wing doors on the Hatt. Stern lines...I kick stern lines up from the cleats to the bridge deck and secure them to the tender. Others handle the lines up front, and I step back to kick stern lines when it's time. One day I might evolve to a PH captain, but for now I love the comfort of the bridge helm.
