I'm also 6'2, and I have full standing height in a pop-top Catalina 25 fixed keel with the top up. My Catalina 22 swing keel doesn't have full standing height, but I think it will be fairly simple for me to modify the top with telescoping poles so that it does.

You shouldn't use the pop-top when sailing in anything but light air, but I don't find the desire to stand fully upright in the cabin while sailing in rough seas either.

I guess this is sort-of irrelevant in the context of liveaboards that can sail around the world...
