i take it thats a roll dampning container across the boat in front of the wheelhouse?
seems to me theres a flaw in the boat design if she needs that..
her deck is in the water there.
where her top rail is would of been a better place for her deck line?
thats another one im not signing on aboard.

Yes Stempost, it's a roll damping tank you can see just behind the foremast.
Mounting such a tank on a vessel like this is not necessarily because the vessel needs it. I think this vessel sailed the first 15 years without such a tank, but any ambitious skipper will always try to improve his vessel, and by putting on a roll damping tank he increase the comfort onboard both for himself and for the crew...so they all last longer.

sounds better when you put it like that, ssmartha.
anything to make life more comfortable is well worth a try..
especially as we get older, lol.
