Headroom

Chip, add "butt room" to your list. I''m serious! Can you slide into the nav station seat easily and rest comfortably? Can you make the morning ritual in the head without feeling like your butt is getting a mammogram? A related point, I''ve also found important while cruising, can you easily exit your berth for those 2am checks on the anchor or to recycle last night''s ration of Miller Light? I''ve often given up the vee berth for the sea berth in the cabin for just those reasons. The Admiral understands its no comment on her.

A last word about ducking...can you stand erect in the cockpit without having to fear the boom?

Have you considered catamarans? While the saloon sections in the center of the boats only go to 6" or so (and less as you go forward), most catamaran hulls offer lots of headroom. I''m only 6''2" but I can stand up in most places on the family Prout Escale. Cheers! Constantin

i think you are worrying too much about the headroom,im 6''4" & have just accepted that i may not be able to stand upright in most or any of the below deck areas,
what i will be considering very important tho'' on my next boat is there sufficient length in any of the bunks or berths to accomodate me,not being able to fully stretch out while resting is a big concern to me.

I''d like to hear liveaboard and/or cruising sailors'' opinion about interior headroom. The latest boat I looked at doesn''t have headroom for me in the head/shower, the master stateroom (forward), and the passageway leading to them both. I would have to duck quite a bit to make it through the passageway, and bend my neck in the head and stateroom while standing. Most other spaces (salon, galley, a small area forward of the aft quarterberth stateroom) have sufficient headroom. The navigation station on the port side is under the cockpit so it doesn''t have sufficient headroom either, but I figure that''s OK because I would probably be seated when at the navigation station.

Does this situation sound untenable for living aboard, and cruising? or am I worrying about something that doesn''t make a real difference over time?

Chip
