The DS III cuddy cabin shown in Denise's video almost looks big enough to squirm into for the night, if you are not too opulent.
I learned on a daysailor II, great boat and I tried to tip it(young and dumb) and couldn't do it, it would round up first. A very good learners boat, put some reef points in the main sail and I think it would make a great bay boat. Good luck
