About the boat I don't know. We just passed her in the vicinity of Bella Bella. Took the pic to remember her. She's definitely my kind of boat. Bridge up high enough for great visibility and lower than a FB. We can't criticize as we don't know if she has a ballasted deep hull. Mark I think this boat is quite a bit larger than yours and I'd be VERY surprised if she didn't have plenty of headroom on the bridge. Here's a better picture.
She may have been a product of someone thinking about the Willard 36 Pilothouse. See the rondy pics in the Willard/Fales section. Decided to keep the bridge lower, further fwd and perhaps the pilothouse is built light w plywood and Lexan windows. The railing's low and the anchor equipment is minimized. Again my kind of boat.
