Re: Strip: Bjorn thomasson frej for big guy

Depends on age and agility, for me I've advanced on the first one and decreased on the second. I used to be able to jump in and out of tiny cockpits of which I've got several, no more for me, now nice normal keyhole cockpits for me.

You get used to sitting on the back deck of an ocean cockpit so getting in and out really isn't an issue once you get used to it if that's the size you choose to build. No more difficult than putting on or taking off a pair of pants.
