what kinds of boats these are. If you post a photo of your boat's interior, could you tell us the make and model? Just for the fun of it.

John - Thanks for edit. I thought that looked like a giant Dana.

Kwaltersmi: You're right! It essentially is a giant Dana 24, with the addition of a nav station and double quarterberth. We previously owned a Dana and liked the open interior arrangement....

While we appreciated the U shaped dinette in our last boat for the easy passage forward, we ended up with a centerline table this last time around.

I'm not a huge fan of this arrangement, finding the table often in the way... however this one is quite clever.



The folded-over top section is fiddled so things will stay on the table in a seaway of need be. When it's flipped over to starboard, it serves the starboard settee quite well (though like all center line tables now blocks passage forward) and the port side dropleaf can be raised to create a large, fiddle free table for dining or a card game at anchor, or in calm conditions. In addition there is a cutlery drawer conveniently built in as you can see.

I like our table. It folds up out of the way against the bulkhead when not in use. When down it still provides passage forward. The L shaped port setee provides seating for 3. When required, a leaf pulls out to extend the table for an additional 2 seats on the starboard setee.

It's difficult to see (lower right) but the table folds up and forward has a leg for support then folds again port and starboard. The top has storage for a half dozen wine bottles or so along with a cabinet in the aft section with three shelfs.There is also storage on the lower port side.

Bestfriend, Faster & BillangieP,

Nice shots of your interiors! It's amazing how many different table arrangements have been conceived. I like ours, but in truth it has some downsides, notabley the lack of fiddles while underway.

Faster: Nice heater installation. You did a better job of concealing the propane and electric lines than I did (ours isn't installed yet in those photos). I'll have to improve on that. By the way, I've forgotten what make your boat is?

BillangieP: I've always liked the Bayfields, but I didn't realize how nice they were belowdecks.

BestFriend: I can see where the love/hate relation comes from. But that is a pretty standard arrangement, and it sure looks nice in the photo, even if it's a bit in the way at anchor.

John, very clever disappearing salon table design. Did you devise that or was it a standard feature from PS?

We have a small, removable teak table up in the pilothouse, which is used for most meals and socializing. It's really only big enough for 2-3 place settings, but I'm considering a hinged leaf to accommodate more. Here's a pre-purchase photo . . . before I stripped and revarnished all the teak:



Our salon table seats six and is on the port side, down below across from the galley. The table is rarely dropped, since it's never in the way. This photo is also pre-purchase, actually taken through a portlight - so please excuse the poor photo quality.



The same salon table shown dropped down to form a third "stateroom", if ever needed. Full width curtains are drawn for privacy:
