Cockpit table: do it yourself? Plans?

I'm looking to add a cockpit table to my catalina 30. The drink holder with the drop leaf table kind. I'm looking to either buy something cheap or make one myself, thus avoiding the laser sight from the wife's Glock.

Anybody make one that they love? Or, can you say, what you'd do, next time?

Love a mechanism? Hate a mechanism? Have pics? Plans?

Appreciate the advice. Merci.

I don't know what the saloon table in the Catalina 30 is like but on our Tartan 30 it mounts on two poles in sockets. instead of cutting holes in the cockpit floor for the base sockets, i made a removable base. instead of carrying two tables we just have the base with us and the table does double duty. It works great on our boat,don't know if this would work for you. Jim L

We added this one from West Marine to our boat and have been very happy with the design. A bit pricey...but perhaps you could use this as a design for one you build yourself.

Cockpit Table

I bought the binnacle guard mountings and hinges from Edson (expensive) and made my own teak table. I'm very happy with it.

Cam: two questions.

First, do the leaves have supports underneath, or is everything on the hinges?

Second, the attachment to the pinnacle: just two semi circle blocks with allen bolts?

Geary..Here's the clamps used to attach to the pedestal...

And the leaves are supported both by the hinges AND slide out pieces of teak which work like a slide ruler if you remember those!
Also of interest may be the 4 cup holders...the 2 middle ones have the center piece between them cut out so you can store your binoculars in them as well.
Have fun!

Dear Mr. Cam,

I have been looking at installing a table in my cockpit, wieght is not an issue, do you think this table could be hinged???

Still thinking about the chairs...the only inconvenience I see is no place to put the car, the TV, the PC and the flower pot without them sliding off...

Sorry Cruiser wannabbee...I gave you at least a minute to take up the challenge but time has expired and I must respond to the Portagee myself.

Giu... I've seen your pictures on line and believe that the weight of the table in the cockpit might be offset by shall we say some personal discipline while seated at the table!!
