Sad but probably true, though I might not dismiss a Riv 37 with Cummins,if it has the rare lower helm.
If you visit again it would be our pleasure to show you the beautiful Hawkesbury, we are on a marina there these days.

Seasonal conditions as well as geographic general weather conditions have great effect as to what/where to "generally" pilot from as well as to how pilot stations are outfitted and/or placed. Reasons for using boat also play heavily into things as well.

In our generally gentle climate we simply love having wide open flybridge with bimini for sun shade; e.g. boating spring, summer, fall. ...
Since we almost always boat west of Antioch (talking Bay Area here), at least half the time the boat is closed up or just one of the pilothouse doors is open; the 12 openable windows and other two doors remaining closed. (We have no A/C.)

Pretty much same same as ours but shinier.
We have no water maker but do have large tankage.
We have a lot more solar
We have an 855 Cummins vs the 6lxb Gardner

We do live aboard full time on anchor.
Very cool. Now that's a liveaboard!
