I have room under the companionway ladder for the board. It's a single big board plus we have a screen one for keeping the bugs out. Sometimes they go in the V-berth.
I'm going to change to bi-fold doors at some point.

drop board stowage
mine are slipped into a 3 compartment canvas pouch & put in the cockpit locker. i have a hinged screen door with a plastic cover that snaps on in foul weather. the door is slid in place where the drop boards were so i don't have to use the drop boards again till i lock up the boat.

|tweitz||Our Beneteau came with a two little u-shaped plastic covered fittings about 4 inches long on the floor of the lazarette next to the bulkhead, and a shock cord set up so that they are kept neatly in place. Very convenient and it has worked very well.|

|Iannis||I place mine under the settee cushions too, which are over the water tanks. So they dont affect storage access. Just added a small "lip" to prevent them from sliding from under the cushions while sailing.|

Install a plastic coated wire rack, large enough to hold the stacked boards, on the inside of your cockpit locker. Locate the rack so you can open the hatch cover and drop the boards right into it (i.e. on the bulkhead the locker shares with the cockpit side). This storage keeps the boards both very accessible but out ot the way.
If you put the boards in a cloth laundry bag before you drop them in the rack, they won't get scratched up over time.

Not such a good idea, since dropboards tend to be heavy, and it could come free by accident. If you want it to be removable, attach it to the locker back with a piece of boltrope and small length of track.
