WDS123 Boom tent is The Way to go. Imagine you are camping, and take only the amount if gear that can fit in a backpack.

Forget towing a Tender - too cumbersome and Slow

MacGyverRI pop a tent up in the cockpit then make some boards to make a full size bed, add an air mattress!

Mobnets Check out the magazine "Small Craft Advisor". All about doing all kinds of things (including overnighting) on very small (mostly under 20') boats. Although I have a 32 footer, I enjoy it anyway just because it's got a lot of interesting material.

What you are trying to do is quite do-able and the ways to achieve it are many and varied.

Do an internet search for dinghy cruising and go from there.. There are even clubs you can join where people share their ideas and experiences. Enjoy!

ImASonOfaSailor I would remove all storage things that you dont need over the time of the sleep over.. This way you can have room where the spinnaker is.. I am sure you do not put the spinnaker up every time when you are sailing the boat. so you could remove it also and just use a tarp over the boom...lay plywood down and get a sleeping bag..

sailguy40 Maybe you can rig up something like whats on the Sea Pearl 21, a convertable cabin...
