Re: Building bulkhead mounted table
The bulkhead mounted table on my Cal 2-27 folds up against a set of shelves; sort of a shallow table-sized cabinet). So It does provide some storage. But your concern about shifting the weight up is something I have also worried about. I avoid storing anything heavy (bottles of wine, cans of soup, et cetera) in it for just that reason. The only things I keep there are some board games, a couple of candle lanterns, my plotting do-dads, and some extra plastic drinking glasses.
Funny thing is, I've been toying with the idea of the opposite switch, going from the bulkhead mounted table to a folding table for other reasons. But, the weight distribution considerations might be an added bonus.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
