So how does it fold up or down? Can you clear the seat? Do you fold it up and block the storage locker, drawer and radio? Not being critical, just curious how it stows when underway.

Installed it back into the boat. Used piano hinge along the back wall, and fixed the 3rd edge to the metal pole running in the center of the boat.
Happy to say it looks great, and I don't know how I managed without it.
quoted w/o actually pushing the button
i believe thats your answer just gotta read captions my friend

I did use a piano hinge to attach the table to the wall but I did so only because it was cheap and easy to install. The table attaches the the pole by a handy metal pin/tab. Its a little hard to explain so I will take a picture soon basically the table rests on a protruding metal ledge affixed to the pole. The pin or tab on the table keeps the table from wiggling left or right, and gravity alone keeps the table down and sturdy with all the weight of my computer monitor and laptop.

I had this for the original table that came with the boat. If i wanted to restore the old table back, its only a few minutes of re-attaching.

I was concerned about my monitor falling off the table but it seems quite stable. I wanted to mount the monitor to the wall so I woudln't have any issues while sailing in the summer, but the mount/arm I found were only 15inches long and didnt give me the positioning I needed. I will look for a longer mount in the spring and worry about it then.

I am happy with keeping the table where it is permanently, but if I really needed to I could have attached the piano hinge on the top side of the table allowing it to fold upwards and out of the way. Then when I need it, it could fold down and rest on or in the metal pin on the pole.

That's a very nice looking tabletop! Very well done!
You make me want to finish the workbench to get back into woodworking!

That said ... Macs are wonderful machines. I've heard them compared (favorably, I might add) to BMWs. I have little experience with them since Tiger came out, before that I used them daily. They are excellent for doing things such as graphics or desktop publishing (PhotoShop and Quark Express). Unfortunately, there are things that they can't do (still). I work at a renal pathology lab and software hasn't been written for the cameras we use on the microscopes.
I very much like XP Pro for PCs ... still, I am a (grudgingly) slow convert to Vista. I have Vista 64 on a Q9300 with 6 gigs of RAM. It has pleasantly surprised me. Granted, I've turned off several of the bells and whistles of Vista.

I like the belly cutout. I think I'll copy it if you don't mind but I may make the belly recess a bit larger.
