    great post... sounds cool !

    I'd like to learn that "sleeping while standing" technique, too. Actually I am looking for a trimaran (around 40 feet) for single handes sailing (living + working on board).

    Beside the cockpit configuration mostly all lines are centred there and lots of winches I have to think about such "sleeping issues", too. ;-)

    A crew of 13 should be able to get lots of sleep laying down. It breaks down to maybe 3-4 hours of work a day per person.
