I can barely sleep in a bed 7 feet long. Two choices: Give him a hammock and
have him camp on an island until you return someday, or tie him up and throw him
in the hold. Well, if he is a good kid, let him sleep in the cockpit in a bivy bag.
I have considered hanging a hammock between the mast and the backstay of my 22
foot sail boat - or perhaps from the boom. However, I decided that was too
crazy for even me.
