Tired of huddling belowdecks or behind a dodger whenever the weather turns nasty? Try the new Habitent, a compact adjustable cockpit enclosure from UK-based Hamilton Innovation. The Habitent fits most boats from 21ft to 31ft LOA and takes just 15 minutes to install using a system of webbing straps and a lightweight collapsible frame made of steel tubing and fiberglass. Its large plastic windows provide excellent all-around visibility and can be rolled up to provide additional ventilation. Each window is also equipped with a mosquito net for those still nights in buggy anchorages. When not in use, the Habitent can be stowed in a compact storage bag.
