Headroom

Chip, add "butt room" to your list. I''m serious! Can you slide into the nav station seat easily and rest comfortably? Can you make the morning ritual in the head without feeling like your butt is getting a mammogram? A related point, I''ve also found important while cruising, can you easily exit your berth for those 2am checks on the anchor or to recycle last night''s ration of Miller Light? I''ve often given up the vee berth for the sea berth in the cabin for just those reasons. The Admiral understands its no comment on her.

A last word about ducking...can you stand erect in the cockpit without having to fear the boom?
