If you keep the seaweed away from the cockpit and minimize all ropes and cordage....it will make your cockpit look bigger!!!!

Enough for a hammock and the plastic owl. All good.

I heard if you have money, you don't need a big cockpit!!! I am a little worried about my cockpit. It is big enough but it is getting old and a little bit soft. The cool thing....on a really clear night, you can be standing in your cockpit and you are able to see Uranus!!!

FlyWright needs a good-sized cockpit to fish.





Since we don't, we only need room to sit.

reminds me of a joke...

Wedding night, wife takes her first look at the guys small cockpit and declares, "Who are you going to please with that?"

His reply, "Me!"

Dude, I'm more worried about that Miller Lite beer you're desperately trying to conceal from us with that beer cozie. You're not fooling any of us!!

that doesn't look like much of a railing to hang a hammock on...

Yeah that railing was a little suspect. I think the angle on the railing stiffened it up some but I was careful with it. I'm only 180 so not too fat yet.
