Looks fantastic!  Well done.

This overcomes one of my gripes about the 430 in that there is little to hang on to at the back.  We are getting quotes on having seats built into the back pushpit on the sides.  We saw this done on a 470 and it looked fantastic.  We might just "borrow" your idea as well!

Also overcomes the "too open" argument without sacrificing the look or the ability for water to drain from the cockpit.

I'll post pictures once done.

Cheers, Peter

Looks very nice. In a few weeks I will be installing a sailomat on our Hanse 411. I want to install it right out of the middle next to the stairs. Apperently this is possible
