Mania Yacht Nelson, Cabin
The cockpit is big enough for six adults, and is open at the stern, with a sturdy gate of wire ropes across it to prevent anyone leaving unintentionally. Beyond the gate is a full-width "scoop" - a handy platform from which your instructor can watch the action and an easy way of getting in and out of dinghies and the water. Her cockpit seats are hinged, and big lockers underneath hold the liferaft, fenders, buckets, docklines, gas bottle, fishing lines and assorted junk. The blue canvas dodger across the front of the cockpit makes a handy place to duck behind when a shower of spray comes your way.
