      those dimensions are for the hull. I'd say that the aft 4' would be
      given to power and the fore 6' to an open bow; one doesn't live
      "inside" forever :-)Still, a 21-23' box is LARGE.

      It is difficult to see how the box can be less than 5 1/2' wide and
      have two comfortable berths, though one could lose 6" of that by
      putting the berths on the same side and skimping a bit on width in the
      galley and the other furniture on that side. Of course, having the
      "occasional" berth in the main saloon is no problem for a single

      I visualize the accomodation, from aft going fwd. being engine space,
      then in the cabin; Locker on one side, head across, "captain's cabin"
      (berth across from desk/library/enclosed reading/charts, etc.) then
      the main saloon with a berth on one side, across from open area with
      chairs and the helm. Finally, the open foredeck and then anchor/wet

      So, maybe it could have 6" side decks and a box that is 6'3" tall, 5'
      wide, and 23' long. I wonder what that would do for stability on a 33'
      X 6' hull????
