We are about to have a shell built and are thinking of ways to improve the horizontal visibility from the saloon. We are considering fitting saloon windows that are deeper than a "standard" 21 inch window. The window frame's lower edge will be closer to the gunwale and should give some improvement in the visibility. We may have to combine this with raising the seating too. Apart from the increased risk of kicking the windows when standing on the gunwale, c
