Sean,
The window thing is mostly style and preference. As I’ve said several to many times there are positive reasons for wannabe windows. By the way it was Marion Fare that coinded the word “wannabe” windows. He thought they were only justified on north sea trawlers. However look at my avatar. The fwd roof overhang does the same as the fwd slant windows. Drier windows w some sun shade.
But it’s mostly style or fad. And these are pleasureboats so one can choose what one likes. I’ve got what I like ... near vertical windows w some roof overhang. Like the Nordic Tug and I don’t even have wipers.
Here’s a great example of the perfect wheelhouse windows .. IMO. Notice the very thin sections between the three window panes. Near or vertical glass is less weight too.
