The Aft Cabin has a watertight bulkhead forward, and a watertight hatch overhead. This cabin is designed to support the operation of the vessel. There is an inside steering station, chart table, pinrail, winch, and steering mechanism. There is an additional hatch overhead that allows a helmsman to see outside while using the inside steering station. All sail control lines can be led into the cabin through a special baffle.
