    A cabin like Economy Jane s will probably look better on Ben than it does on Economy Jane. I think Billy and John went about as tall as they dared with Economy

      A cabin like Economy Jane's will probably look better on Ben than it does
      on Economy Jane. I think Billy and John went about as tall as they dared
      with Economy Jane's cabin. Ben's extra size should handle the same height
      more gracefully.

      Don't use up too much of the cockpit with the cabin, since you will be
      spending a lot of time outside.

      John - I couldn t agree more. If I decide to go this routh, I will certainly do this (not enlarge the cabin too much at the expense of cockpit space). Thanks,
