RE: [bolger] Water Craft magazine & Seabird 86 article
- Having just reread the article in question, Bolger calls it a doghouse,
although he later mentions it as a pilothouse, so you may take your choice.
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.
