We stuff a sponge between the cutting mats and the cross bar when we're underway, which keeps it from thumping fore and aft.

If you want to make them non-skid, run a bead of silicone caulk around the bottom of the plate, then set the plate (bottom side down) on a piece of wax paper. Let it dry, and voila you've got a non-skid plate.

Who needs non-skid plates??? That's only a problem if you heel... Oh, yeah, those pesky leadmines do...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

How is a good way to store them so when healing, or in seas whatever they do not bang around?
In some boats I see the separators, like the one I drew in the pic.
Any place I can buy these, I have not found them. I could make them I suppose, any drawings?
Any ideas?

Thanks,

Just cut up squares of non-skid (like you use under a rug) and place between the plates. That works well.

Corelle is ok. I still have some. But it is slicker than crap and boats rock and heel. We still have a few pieces left that have not broken! But we have kids!!! You guys without kids and on multihulls do not live in the real world (snicker!!!). HEHE!

I have actually become a fan of the marine plates and bowls as a liveaboard. You will never eat on them heeled over at 45 degrees, but you will find that your table is "slick", your cabinets can be slick, and the cockpit table (where we eat a lot) is slick. THere are of course work arounds, like the non-skid I mentioned, but maybe you and your wife can splurge on some of the other stuff for Christmas? BTW, I also got the "marine" cups... but they suck (to me). Feels like drinking coffe out of a plastic mug! I don't care if they are slick or not, I refuse to drink coffee out of a plastic mug!!!

PS One negative of the marine plates is that over time they seem to lose their ability to work in the microwave (the plates get hot and not the food). At least ours have. Corelle is nice for that. We also keep paper plates for warming stuff up.... but that was not the original questions I guess.

You can use these. We don't have a boat yet but we use this in our house and they work very well.
