Pilot birth width

How wide does a pilot birth need to be? I'm thinking 34' or so. I'm thinking of changing a storage shelf for a pilot birth so we have more usable bunks offshore. Our Newport doesn't seem to hobbyhorse too much but I seem to be the only one who can get "rocked to sleep" in the v-birth in big seas.
