I also HATE slapping halyards a sad example of seamanship ha ha with six people chances are at least on will snore quite loudly I think noise will be the least of your sleeping problems..........and yes if all of these things are hard to deal with having your own vessel should definitly be a high priority. Probably dont feel like volunteering on a tall ship cruise.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

That would be my wife . . . solution - foam earplugs. They muffle the snoring sound - reducing sound up to 28 DBs, not enough that I won't be alerted in case of an emergency.

My sister-in-law used to say that it was proof that her sister truly loved me...that she could sleep next to me without ear plugs...

Agreed SD . . . but I'm a better lover when I get at least 6-7 hours of sleep each night .

I love sleeping on board, but there is always something loose somewhere in some hard to reach space that makes just a little whisper of noise with every gentle rock of the boat.
I don't know how many times a can of soup has woken me up or some screw rolling back and forth in a drawer.
I have the tendency when I'm a sleep to try and ignore it, after all I don't like getting up in the middle of the night. That works for about 15 minutes till I go mad and have to search for the culprit.

My boat rocks a good deal less than a monohull... advantage multihull.

Still the best.

The best sleep I can ever remember was on the trampoline of my Freesytle 474 cat, doggie staked to the beach. I spent many teenage nights drifting away, looking at the stars. Advantage-Catamaran on the beach.
