Re: V berths
Our V-birth is the domain of our son, and has been since he was 18months old. Both my wife and I like to sprawl out when we sleep, and there is just not enough room to do that up there. We currently have a bed that spans both settees, so we have a near queen sized rectangular bed. The downside is that we have to dis assemble our bed each morning. Our next boat must have a decent aft berth, because we have yet to see an acceptable v-birth among the boats we are looking at. We will just have to live with the headroom problem!
