We do have a lee cloth on the pullman however it is mostly there to prevent sail bags and such that we are storing on the bed from falling out. In my opinion berths that large, wile great at anchor, almost always make for poor sleeping when offshore (I prefer a nice tight space to wedge myself into) so when sailing we usually sleep in either the pilot berth or on the settee witch also has a lee clothe.
