Race boats with large teams are going to be helpful here in terms of ideas. Aluminum framed "hammocks" able to support a lee cloth and also able to fold up against the sides will give basic sleeping areas, and yet can be cleared for action, so to speak, when people want to mess around a central table. "Hot-bunking" is the idea that the bed is in use most of the time, in which case you could have 12 or even 8 bunks, depending on how many watches you have. Lastly, what about the traditional hammocks, swinging in unison and rolled up tight on the day watch?
