That said I agree wholeheartedly with wanting to get away from a v-berth. I am finding that as the old joints start to seize up that doing the v-berth shuffle is becoming somewhat difficult.

My preliminary measurements show it will work if using an extension design. That way we still have a bit of access to Starboard of the berth when it's in. The settee may be a slightly lower height then normal to allow the berth to slide over it when opened but I can adjust the vanity height to compensate. It's still in the design phase so it may or may not happen. We can both live with the V-berth the way it is if necessary. I just thought to make it nicer for Fredia, a little more feminine.
