In searching, I've found folks who've used tables that stow away, but that's not what we want. We want a traditional folding table. I've read about some who've made new ones, but often they were based on an original that needed replacement. We don't have one of those.
Does anyone know of any instructions, or perhaps a site where someone has documented their work, that might provide enough info for us to build one ourselves? Without a model to copy, I'm really not sure where to start.
By the way, I searched sailnet, but couldn't find much on this topic, so if I missed a great thread, please feel free to refer me to that one!
Sabre's are way classy boats and deserve the best!
So here are links to a couple of table threads on the EY site:
Cockpit Table using Starboard(tm) material - EY.o Information Exchange
Cockpit Table - EY.o Information Exchange
I admit to being partial to the one with no brace beneath to bump knees against.
