See what you have started? I can hear the theme music from Sanford & Sons playing in the background...

A variation on the theme I used to have my Chartplotter visable from every angle anywhere in the cockpit. I'm a Starboard fan as you can see from all the additions but I think a couple track cars could be made to hold or at least to help hold a table with some Starboard or metal (if needed) framing.

My friend's boat has boom on a sliding gooseneck that is rigged in a very similar fashion, and in this case we'd have a table instead of the boom... If it can work for a boom... I don't see why it couldn't work for a table.

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.

You guys are too much! Here is a pic of the underside clamping system on a Hunter 30 (similar design on a Hunter 35.5). Very interesting, similar to sailaway21's idea.
