Cockpit Table Extender Boards Holder
I purchased a white poly fold down table for the cockpit. I also
purchased two side extender boards which are removable. The problem
was where to store the extenders when not in use. The Mk II came
from the factory with a clever way to store the companionway boards.
It is made up of a heavy duty white plastic U shaped holder attached
alongside the bottom of the upper ladder. Then on the wall, about
two feet up, there is a bracket. Each end of the bracket is attched
to the wall (spaced so that the companionway boards will fit
between). The bracket ends are connected with a double bungee cord.
Pull the bungee out from the way and slip the boards in place. In
order to store my cocpit table extenders I had my dealer order and
install a second companyionway board holder on the opposite side of
the ladder. With a slight width adjustment between the upper bracket
ends, it makes a perfect spot to store the extender boards. We also
store the sink covers there, and a cutting board. The bracket with
installation cost me $100. I'm sure it could be done for a lot less
if you do it yourself. (Lou
