2. Cabin roof slope. Attaching drawing. The aft part of B deck is doubled and raised with 125 mm for cables to achieve wire link between starboard and port steering wheels. I will publish my solution soon.
3. This is a cruising cat so 90% of time is on autopilot.
After seeing the cross section I believe a flat or much flatter roof will be better and doable for the sake of steering cables. Surely such a high windage an FP looking cabin top seems a questionable design compromise just so your planned steering mech works. IMO the steering system needs to be looked at if a huge sloping roof is the concession that needs to be made to accommodate it.
A large flat cabin top will be a nice lounging area with cushions sometimes. I certainly hung out on the flat cabin top of my last cat to enjoy the 360 view with a beer in a beautiful anchorage.
