I sleep like a log on the boat, even the old one but I'm wide awake the instant something changes. Don't mind at all getting up and checking out the lay of the land in the middle of the night however. Some of my favourite times onboard have been sitting on deck at two in the morning , dead calm and an otherwise empty anchorage. Not a unique experience I know but nonetheless looverly.
