The Garcia Exploration 45 Compared to The Boréal 47—Part 4, Inside Watch Stations

The inside watch station on the Garcia. "Raise the shields, Mr. Spock".

In Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3 I compared the rigs, deck layouts, cockpits, hull form and build of the two boats. If you have not yet read those three articles, please do so now with particular attention to the disclosure that the series starts with.

Now let's move on to the inside watch stations that differentiate both of these boats from most others, and the very different approaches between the two.

By the way, I was going to cover the inside watch stations and the interior in this part, but it got so long that I decided to give the watch stations their own article, particularly since I think this is one of the most important parts of any boat, particularly one designed for expedition sailing.

Even if you are not interested in buying either boat, this article will help you evaluate the watch stations on any boat, yes, even a motorboat.
