Re: Sleeping preference?
As I got older I found that sleeping in a very veed v-berth (meaning veed to a sharp point) to be damn nigh impossible and on our previous boat I ended up kipping on one of the settees.
Current girl's v-berth stops (or starts) just aft of anchor locker so there is more than adequate tootsy wriggle room.
I'm also one of those who will often still sleep in the saloon if I'm at all worried about the anchorage.
I think though that it would have to be a very sad anchorage if it was too rough to sleep up front.
