Can you not slide the traveller all the way to one side or the other and set up a table that attaches to the binnacle support like most do? It would have to be stored elsewhere while sailing, but would be 'normal' sized when needed.

Not as convenient as a permanent mounted swing-up table but you've got some cockpit storage space.

Add a 'leaf' that folds out towards the companionway? Lots of appropriate table hardware and support ideas for that, as well as foldouts to make the table wider.

I like things that double up so my cockpit table for is also my folding Workmate bench.
Safe sailing
