"There would be no need for affairs, lust or any of the other sins for man to engage in!"

What makes you think about that Walt?

We really liked the extra speed of the Camano but at our age the idea of narrow side decks made the better half cast a veto.
The side decks are indeed narrow but there's a full length handhold along the top so as long as you hold on with one hand the narrowness shouldn't be a problem. My wife has never said anything about it.

If it were ever necessary to get to the foredeck in rough seas, I would use the hatch in the berth rather than the side decks.

The Camano is certainly at the small end of the scale as far as trawlers go so the question is; Is it big enough for your intended use? For some, the answer is "yes", for others, it might be "no".
