Re: Prep boat's INTERIOR for possible knockdown

I don't agree. We've broken one piece of crystal in eight years and that was at anchor. The booze locker, properly padded, has plenty of glass in it. Lots of products in the pantry are in glass. You...

Re: Sleeping Accommodations --- is there a thread?

We did this on our Catalina 22 just last weekend! (Minus the queen air mattress.)

We dropped the table and I cut some boards to bridge the table to the starboard settee. We used the dinette...

Re: Sleeping Accommodations --- is there a thread?

Folks earlier in this thread have described bridging the settees into a large berth. I've seen that work quite effectively. As long as the head and galley are aft of the bed there really is no need...

Re: Sleeping Accommodations --- is there a thread?

Hey,

My Newport 28 had two settees in the main cabin. The port would expand to a double. There was a filler sheet under cushions that had legs on one side and pins on the other to lock it in...

Re: Sleeping Accommodations --- is there a thread?

You can do what We did on our Bristol 24, I attached a stringer (1x1) along the face of both settees, then spanned the gap with a couple of planks, put in filler cushions to gain the same thickness...

Re: Sleeping Accommodations --- is there a thread?

It is big 30 footer and not cheap but the Nonsuch 30 Ultra has a pullman berth. No idea how wide it is. There is also a 26 Ultra but the mast goes through the foot of the bed so one set of feet would...

Re: Sleeping Accommodations --- is there a thread?

Many Catalina 25 owners make a huge double berth by dropping the table, bridging the settee to the table with some boards, then putting a queen sized air mattress over the whole thing.

Re: Sleeping Accommodations --- is there a thread?

Sounds like you're looking for a 'pullman' berth - one with an open side. Not likely to be found on a 30 footer.

There are a variety of ways to make a settee on one side or the other a 'pull-out'...

Re: Sleeping Accommodations --- is there a thread?

My 78-YO mother sails with us. Our table turns the port berth into a double berth. The cushions are supposed to fit together like a puzzle to create a mattress but we've never figured out how to do...

Re: Quarter Berth Conversion

Doesn't the Catalina 27 also have a big deep cockpit locker? I had a Catalina 25 and it's lazarette was huge for a boat that size, though the hatch was small. A Catalina 27 made after the mid 80s...
