Well, depending on how comfortable they are, and how hard on the wind you might be on port tack, one of those things might actually be your best bet...

i ran this H-R 43 back north from the islands in June that had such an arrangement, Until we got north of Hatteras, the entire trip up from Trinidad had been on starboard tack or DDW, so the port settee was the place to be. But around Hatteras the breeze came strong from the W, and I managed to grab a couple of nice catnaps in those chairs, add 20 degrees of heel and it's not much different from a snooze in a Business Class seat:-)
