Re: Cruising/sailing with musical instruments... ?
My baby grand could replace the Saloon table as there's a U shape seating arrangement but the mast would have to go through the middle of the strings and soundboard!
Guess you need to step the mast on the cabin top, and reinforce the piano's structure to bear the compression post. I have seen a steel beam span the cabin, with supports to either side. Can you fit your piano through the companionway entrance?
Obviously I think music is just as important as sailing!
