 Dabber Sleeping Boards and Boat Tent

"First I should start by explaining I am 6’-4” tall and weigh 240 pounds. Sleeping on the floor boards is not really an option. I tried it once, when the wind was howling, and a combination of the curve of the seats and the main sheet cleat made for a pretty uncomfortable night. At my size I could not really sleep on my back as there is not enough room between the seats and the center board trunk. I took care of this problem by creating “drop in” boards that fit between the seats and raise the sleeping level up off the floor. These cover the rear portion of the cockpit. To reduce the number of boards I sleep on a slight diagonal and my feet extend onto the rear deck adjacent to the motor well, almost all the way to the transom."
