MY experience is that the top of the door would hit something if it swung into the cabin space. No idea on CC.

companionway door

the direction that the companionway door opens either in toward the trunk cabin or out toward the pilothouse isn't a code issue. but it would be awkward to open inward as the door could block a tight space if you had to get out of the trunk cabin in a hurry. and you are right you almost never see the companionway door opening inward

companionway door

I know what you are saying about the space that a door takes up when open. I have routinely bi-fold the doors for that reason

door opens in

I made my door and folding bifolding hatch above out of quarter sawn white oak. The door hinges into the V berth and allows for the dash slightly slanting forward for 1/4" clearance. The door latches in the open position against the head and does not interfere with the use of the V berth.

Steelguy- please start a separate thread on your boat. It looks like you have worked that thing over from head to toe with some interesting ideas that I am sure many would love to see. At least I would.

Love that ceiling-
