Here's the nav station and seat as is now. I have a little finishing work to do on the table - and need to either add a thick cushion to the seat, or re-build it slightly taller - a project for next winter.

Any updated photos of the nav station project?
P.S. I like those Bike Friday's too!!

Having thought about it, if the forward wall of you nav station is already slanted, you'll presumably have some difficulty re-orienting it through 90degrees... good luck!
Bike Friday is where I got our tandem. Top quality :-) - and top $ :-( If you are interested in these, go for the folding - NOT dissassembling variety. 4 minutes to assemble/fold as opposed to about 45 minutes... How do I know...? :-(

I see what you mean.
The flat top doesn't really bother me anyway - I sit at one all day
Googling folding tandems now, too!

When I started the Nav Station revamp, I also wanted to take it apart completely - not so easy.
The bottom of the station extends right to the hull - under the sill which houses most of the electronics. Therefore difficult to remove. This also makes it unappealing to run flush with the sill - since you'd be exposing a raw edge of plywood - hence I developed the small aft storage box - which is actually proving to be really useful!
The other problem is that the forward side of the nav station also extends to the hull - and again would be very difficult so simply cut out and replace.
What I don't like about the new station is that it is flat - not tapered - but again, to accomplish a taper would have been very difficult - trying to get a good line on the forward side and being able to then cover the raw ply edge.
However, it turns out that having a flat table is actually of huge advantage - we find ourselves using the table from both the new seat and from the passageway - I guess I got really lucky.
The only thing I think I did wrong - easily fixable - is that the new seat (not shown in the photos (which only show the mock-up version) is a little low - but then I needed another project for next winter! :-)
The whole project turned out to be much easier than I had anticipated - though I still have to do the final finishing - next winter!
The improvement to access in the quarterberth is absolutely fantastic - storing the folding tandem there is now really easy.

Looks good - we are very interested because we are in the same boat (so to speak), except ours tapers down towards the centerline.
We might go a step further and take ours apart entirely, so we could come further into the passage.
Does anyone out there have the dimensions for the stock fwd looking desk?

Currently using a group 27 gel, located in the big cockpit locker - on the shelf. I'll probably swap it for the Group 31 I have and move it to behind the new nav station seat.
Trying very hard to map out my charging circuit - not easy - very convoluted. It's all well put together - but since I don't know which wire goes to what - including all the battery cables, it's rather difficult.
