Re: Manitou 32?

Sprogs indeed ...now where have I heard that before ?

Longer trips ? How long is longer ? If you are thinking coastal passages then it would be a stout sprog indeed who could sleep in the forepeak of a 27'er at sea.

That said and accepting that six on a 30'er is akin to camping when at anchor , you need to make sure that the cockpit seats are long enough to double as sleeping quarters. I doubt you'll find what you are after in less than 28' . Too many other compromises in making a 27'er sleep six.
