      I believe it is clearly a doghouse as I understand the term.

      It seems to me that a pilothouse is for the pilot (helmsperson if you like)
      to stand in and steer the vessel. So it has to be quite tall and have larger
      forward-facing windows. It would not need to be very long. A doghouse is
      like a trunk cabin, but raised higher so as to give full headroom, perhaps
      over an engine room. Normally it would would have a steering position, so it
      would not need to have large forward-facin windows.
