Good god man, are you trying to start a war???  Isn't the bridge deck traveller thread divisive enough, tearing apart this happy band of kindred souls?

And the engineer in me wants to know what the definition is of an offset companionway?  An inch?  A foot?  Given that most boats are not on C&C machined molds I'd guarantee some offset, how much is too much?

as long you don't see it without mesuring, it is good.

Bit like the square (or retangular) rooms in old houses. They all look good, but when you start using a straight edge and a square you see things you wish you haven't seen
