Mark, actually the AT PH doors very similar you yours with essentially the same hardware.*Easy to secure.*

Also, I have included a picture of the hull which you can see is not a rounded as yours since this is a semi-displacement hull.*
*And you have four times the horsepower than I, Larry.* But I'm happy cruising at 6.5 to 7.0 knots.

*I love my Dutch-style pilothouse doors.* I often close the bottom-halves when the waves are "frisky" and spray comes over the bow.

RE: Capsizing safety?

Mike, now I understand your Avitar better knowing what you do. The information you gave is very helpful.*

TOMCO Marine Group makes the American Tug and I will contact them tomorrow regarding a stability curve.

Mark, I'm happy cruizing at 8 knots despite the extra power.

Great contributions here. What an impressing and valuable assembly of knowledge and experience! I'm so impressed.*Thanks

*Yeah.* Although in this photo the water was relatively calm (but most evertime I go out there is a need for wipers as in last weekend when going down the Napa River at its widest expanse.)
