Rusty-thanks for the info on the 30' limit. There was one docked down here last year at Shilshole Marina in Seattle, the front 3-4 of the bow was cut off and a steel plate welded on to make a flat nosed bow. We could not see any someone would do that, now I know!

Fishing vessels have either an observer or cameras aboard recording every landing, which must be logged and accounted for at the dock. There are vessel quotas for the target specie plus bycatch quotas. Bycatch must be retained. Fishing must stop once any quota limit is approached. A highly regulated industry.

That's why quite a few of us boaters have two pilot stations. One in the salon (pilothouse) for the limited number of precipitation/frigid days... and... One for the many, many nice days we spend on the bridge. Such as are the weather conditions in many regions of the world.
With Otto at the helm, there's plenty of time to enjoy/sniff the air. (I'm not a current fan of ultra violet light because I've had much more than enough sailing in an open sailboat's cockpit.)

Note those very high and sturdy rails and raised edge on the deck. While I fully support the use of PFDs whilst on a foredeck, he would have to work pretty hard to go over the side there.

I don't know... if you consider the CG of the Leo D. wannabe the high rails may not be sufficient to keep said individual from going for a swim if a greasy haired gold chain wearing schmo in a SeaRay passes by at flank speed.

In my teenage years, I was the foredeck man handling the launching and recovery of the spinnaker during races, (in strong-winded San Francisco Bay) without PFD or handrails. ... Presently, have absolutely no need for a flying bridge and unafraid to be on deck during calm conditions without a PFD, unless sailing solo.

On the Coot:
