That's still fairly tidy compared to some boats I've seen. There's no dinghy hanging off the back.
The liferaft is securely stowed on the cabintop.
My boat, when it was first splashed, didn't have a stern arch nor did it have dinghy davits.
Now it has both.
Need drives function over form/elegance.
And as the weather down here is often shit, don't tell me about 30+ knot winds. Been there a lot of times, not much fetch in the Channel but winds? We have winds.
And I made my arch as low as I could, the top is only 1.55m off the deck. Not one of those towering tuna towers.
There's the added hard dodger, too. Same reason.
For blue water work I'd have the dinghy on the cabin top, sure, but dinghy davits are highly practical. We can launch the dink in a minute or so and recovery is about the same. Also the space between the davits is useful for adding a solar panel, as well as the space on top of the arch, which was originally for the mainsail bundle until I made a new, shorter main.
So yeah, a hull looks sleeker for sure without these things. I can remove both the davits and the arch, I designed them to bolt on and off. But I can't see the time when I will.
