Re: How to sleep
Have seven berths with 5 aft of the mast and "queen" island forward. Except DDW or in light air nobody wants to sleep in front of mast. Saloon berths near 7' with lee clothes. Double in aft quarter stateroom with berth separated with lee board when neccessary. Think hot bunking gets old after 2-3d. Think sleeping with pillows/sheets and blankets is nice. Think having more berths than crew means you can usually sleep to leeward so leeclothes/boards not necessary except when really rough. Carry sleeping bag to drape over and pad lee board. Think boats of last 10y are usually slip condos not "real" boats as that's what sells now.
