I did it a couple of times just using a bivvy bag on the front deck of a 7.5m Ribtec. There was a slight slope on it so I gradually slid down towards the console during the night. Apart from that it was OK!

One of the teams who went round Britain with us in 1999 had a tent that they put up on the from deck of their 8.5ish meter Delta each night. Seemed to work pretty well for them.

To be fair, I didn't have far to slide as my feet were already touching the console to start with!

Hopefully setting the Ballistic up for sleeping aboard, but it's completely empty forward of the console, for nearly 7 feet.

We'd still have to fold the torl wun in half though...
