Irwin 37 Mk V

Has anyone been in the cockpit of one of these boats? It looks small, but I was wondering if it was less than 6' long ( I am short and can sleep in a 6' space).

1348 Days to retirement and counting down. Thats only 824 working days!

I have been on one of these exactly once (not sure whether it was a Mk V). My recollection is that as CC boats go, the cockpit is narrow, but I seriously doubt that the seats were less than 6' long. Here's a web site that might provide better info:
