She's a pilothouse design, with a generously proportioned single stateroom and single head forward. As far as we're concerned, that's an ideal layout. The perfect boat (for us) drinks six, feeds four, and sleeps two.
You're preaching to this choir!

That's a Roskelley Olsson davit. They are popular in the Pacific NW, and have been sold around the country as well. It is essentially a frame, hinged at the bottom, from which a dinghy hangs off the stern. It is raised and lowered by an electric winch that is mounted to the davit and is cabled to the transom.

The photo was taken on a mooring buoy off Clark Island, (one of the Washington State Parks), and the davit is down because we are off in the dinghy.
