alternative to PSC 37 dressing seat

I am not an owner but this boat is at the top of my short list. One thing I'm not sure about is the utility of the "dressing seat". It seems to me the space could be put to better use. I seem to remember someone detailing a project to convert this to storage space. I thought it was in this forum but I cannot seem to find it.

Has anyone else heard of such a project?

Re: alternative to PSC 37 dressing seat

Funny you should ask about this. I just got through talking about having mine re-done in order to accomodate a plank that would cover it over. That extra square foot or so will undoubtedly allow much more room for two. The factory will probably do mine. We hardly use it as it is now.

Re: alternative to PSC 37 dressing seat

This is my wife's favorite place to read -- or maybe she just wants to get as far away from me as is possible?!?!. So while I agree that it looks like a bit of wasted space, it turned out to be a gem.

Re: alternative to PSC 37 dressing seat

I find the dressing seat a very nice way to step down from the vee berth. However, if there was a simple way to level it with the vee berth when sleeping room was needed and back to a seat easily that could be a winner. Let us know if you are able to get the best of both worlds.

Seacurves: I think I saw that feature on a PSC at the Annapolis Boat show afew years back. You should ask Thumper at PSC.
