I had a friend who lived on board a Stewart 34 for many years. I presume that it is double diagonal Kauri? As long as it doesn't leak when raining it would be no different than living aboard
any other yacht of a similar size. We have been living aboard
& Cruising around the South Pacific
on a 32ft Lidgard for 13 years. One of the most important things for us to make life more comfortable at anchor
is to have a good dodger
with side clears to keep the wind
& rain out. This gives us another room.
