Having crossed a couple of oceans I am aware of this regarding sea berths, but thank you. As wth many cruising couples, we plan on about 95% of our time to be spent at anchor. And thanks to everyone with input, we're paying attention to your opinions and working on the To-Look-At list. It is highly appreciated!

In my experience there is nothing better than the sole. You can't fall off the floor. On most boats there are lots of places to wedge into. The only issue is letting the watch get to the head. If the head is at the base of the companionway where it belongs that isn't a problem.
