You didn't discourage me. If that's all it took, I shouldn't be anywhere near the water in the first place. I want to know what people much more experienced than myself think. I read these forums much more than I post but if I want or need to know something, I WILL pick your brains for every scrap of information I can get.

Comfort is a relative thing. I build bridges so I'm use to eating my lunch with dirty hands while sitting in a shady spot on the ground. That is much more comfortable than those days when we're soaking wet in the rain and can't eat because we're too busy. On that note, keep the advice, opinions, and suggestions coming.

I can see where having less than adequate headroom to stand in can be tolerable, even adventuresome during short trips. But as was suggested, I still think it would have to be a requirement for spending long periods aboard. After reading about all the little things that people must adapt to when they move aboard and given the tendency of sailboat listings to not mention headroom available, I was wondering if it may end up being just one more thing to adapt to. Thanks for the reality check though.
