Wink Bristol 35.5 Interior Dimensions

I think I have some sense of the interior dimensions of the Bristol 38.8, (it was actually a Wauquiez Hood 38), and while there were some spots inside, which were snug, overall I felt like the boat "fit me" fine. I'm now trying to get a sense for the interior dimensions of the 35.5. If you know, can you share the interior dimensions? Specifically;

1) Headroom throughout, (in the head and v-berth, as well as salon)
2) Passageway width for both head and v-berth

Lastly, I'm a big guy, (6'2" and like to have 20" wide doorways), and expect to be sailing with only me and my wife, but if you have any comments about how it felt to be inside the 35.5 saloon with 4 adults, or with, (ahem), larger framed, fellows like myself, I'd love to hear that too. (Was it like being trapped in a bear den with the bear? etc.)
