Being gaff rigged there is minimal heel.

A low rig , not just a gaff gives minimal heel.

A modern MS would never bother with a gaff , full battens of pulltruded GRP made gaffs obsolete 40 years ago.

Many MS will have a large enough deck house that only sleeping and the head is below , most waking activities are carried on with light and air.

Sadly this can only be done with a generous sized vessel, 50-60+ ,and still look good..
