I've slept in the Redbay 11m quite a few times and its fine. Im 6'2'' and NOT built like the side of a fag paper. We went up the West Coast for about 10 days last year and stayed on the boat, both on pontoons and at anchor.
The only thing is we have to "Bucket and chuck it" and all cooking has to be done on a wee camping stove.
Sleeping on a Rib is a bit like camping, but the big bonus is that you dont have to plan accomodation ahead and can go where-ever and when-ever you like.
