My starboard settee back is hinged for access, with plywood backing the cushion. Problem is the hinges are at the top and I'm changing them to the bottom, I am also going to divide the space somehow as right now it is undivided from one end to the other.

Brian, rather than divide the space, have you thought of using baskets or sealed containers (cheap cane ones or clear lunch boxes from the supermarket) instead?

Using a series of baskets for the entire length works the same way as more permanent dividers, but allows a bit more flexibility if you have different sized items to stow - and you can pull the whole basket out to find small items that would be left to roll around otherwise...

Baskets are one possibility. But I think a divider or 2 might help as well as the space is 60" x 18" and varies in depth from 6" to 16".
