A good ss folding bracket for a cockpit table

If you are considering building a cockpit table that folds down against your pedestal guard here is a good folding bracket. The concavity of the fixed leg fits guard tubing perfectly. It is strong and secures in place solidly. I paid about $30+? for a pair. I built my own "table" and just bolted it on. I am going to use a second pair to mount a folding table/shelf in the cabin.

Interesting find, downeast. I seem to always be thinking about a DIY cockpit table, but haven't done anything about it. Do you have a picture to show?

I will look for one. I probably have one. I used a piece of marine plywood for the original so I could tweak the size. That one is still in place and I think I will paint it and keep it there. This table cost me less than $50.00.

Their stuff is pretty good. I've got their catalog. IIRC, they make the bracket i posted a link to in your thread.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
