Re: Yet Another Beginner
I personally would keep the cabin as an option. Wind, as wonderful as it is, can be your worst enemy. It alone can decide whether your day on the water is an enjoyable and memorable one or a life threatening situation.
Extremes yes, but either way, the wind will grind you down and wear you out and you will look for ways to keep the air still around just your head, to get a break from it.
Apart from keeping all your stuff dry whilst still having it accessible, a cabin provides a basic need that if you have with you on the water, will make any journey, big or small, more enjoyable, giving you more versatility in planning where you can go and how long you can spend there.
Just my opinion from much experience on it the big blue wobbly thing.
Good on ya mate. Take care now.
