Now I like my beer cold [hey, we live in Queensland], but I couldn't cope for long in temps below 15 celsius, so I would have about 15 layers on & be unable to move.
Anyway, did you get out for a sail?
I think the additional 2 feet + is actually in the cockpit
area. On your 46, I believe the area on the stbd side by the engine
room is actually long enough for a bunk, but on the 44, there is not enough length for a bunk... just a storage
area or a lot of 44 owners put their battery
bank there, plus sail storage
above. So the 46 has a much roomier cockpit
and engine room as well. I believe the two staterooms, heads and salon/galley are pretty much the same in both boats.
