centaursailor is on a distinguished road
Heave too on a good night and the boat can be set up to make way slowly from any point of danger.
Sleeping without watch keeping is the real danger.
With good radar it might be safer but I wouldn,t be able to sleep much unless I had crew on watch.
I am up and down all night even when in a good safe anchorage
Safe sailing
