I'm currently stuck trying to decide how high to make the floor of the cockpit. Like many, I would like some room in the aft cabin. But the cockpit well is a rather annoying thing to have protruding into the cabin. I'm trying to find a compromise. Is there a preferred spacing between the aft cabin bunk and the ceiling above it? My preliminary sketches have the cockpit directly over the bunk with a space of about 30 inches. That seems a little claustrophobic. Unfortunately, to make more room means raising the cockpit which creates new problems (boom clearance, rope routing, having to climb way up to board from swimming, etc.).

I wish there was a marina around here. I'm curious how this problem is addressed in other designs.
