You'll find five hatches cross the aft half of the cockpit that contain a livewell, a huge fish box, an ice receiver for the Eskimo and lazarette access to steerage and plumbing. Another sizable fish box graces the transom on centerline. Under the gunwale and side walkway to port, you'll also find the washdown spigots and storage for gaffs, mops and other items. The shore-power cord and the oil-change outlet lie to starboard. As you'd expect, Viking provides a tuna door with a lift-up gate. But thankfully, it also mounts several steps with handholds on the outside of the transom below the waterline, so whether you fall in unexpectedly or intentionally take a dip, you'll be able to climb back out of the water.
