The 104 course would be tough, but I did an equivalent of a 104 course for my bareboat certification, and had to sleep aboard, and I can snore like a nitro-powered chainsaw. The second night we were anchored out, I slept in the cockpit and never slept better or more quietly. I must admit, the first night was really tough on some of the others aboard, since sleeping in the cabin didn't stop my snoring like sleeping in the cockpit did. The guys aboard were in pretty rough shape come morning...except the instructor, who did sleep in the cockpit.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
