Re: can i make more living room on my boat?

I did some recent modifications to our interior that resulted in a much more useful and liveable vessel.
I put up some long closet poles the length of the cabin onto which I hang 2 hanging closet storage shelf units. These can then slide the length of the berths depending on what we are doing, so now when we are on the boat we can actually unpack all our clothes, towels etc into these and stow our bags away under the v-berth rather than trying to live out of the bag. We can also hang vegetable baskets, gloves and anything else, plus they double as a towel rail. Really simple and incredibly useful.
I also modified the table (drilled a hole, so about as easy as it gets) to enable it to be either fore/aft, or athwartships across the end of the port berth.
Everything can be taken out in seconds, no modifications to any cabinetry etc but a world of difference to the interior.
