    Deck The cockpit on the Tartan 37 C is among the most comfortable designs in this size range. S&S got it right. the coamings offer good back support and protection at sea. The seat height and distance between P & S seating are perfect when on the wind. The T-shaped cockpit makes getting around the 36" s.s. wheel easy and convenient. The coamings are perfect height and width for sitting outboard of the wheel. The winches are within easy reach for sail trim. And there is a very large and deep sail locker that will accommodate 3 or 4 sails, fenders dock lines, etc. There is also a lazarrette locker behind the helm for storing smaller items. A manual Gusher bilge pump is built into the cockpit. All instruments are in easy sight of the helmsman.
