Ericson 27 Head Room ?

Hi all, I am looking at purchasing an Ericson 27, but unfortunately I have yet to climb aboard one. I am hoping to to look at a few prospects by the end of this month. If any one knows: What is the actual head room? Not just below the hatch. Also, what is the length of the forward berth? I have yet to find a berth that I fit into well (I am 6'3"), that is in the 27 ft range, so I am hoping that this is the fit!! Thanks for your time.

The knack of sleeping in small boats for anyone over 5'9" is developing a love for Foetal Sleeping.... either that or use the quarter berths which are usually longer

hahahaha. I suppose your right. However, I am still hoping to find some actual dimensions for the Ericson. Thanks for your time.

Tho' as an owner once said the forepeaks that pointy and narrow it'd be hard for anyone with big feet to get comfy..... so thats us 6ft+'s out for a start
