Re: Converting Starboard Settee to Double Bed
This sounds like more or less exactly what I'm shooting for at this point. A couple pictures would be awesome!
Where do you store the legs when not in use?
I have a small drawer right beside the settee that they fit in nicely. The legs were made from maple boards, I believe they measure 3in wide by 3/4in thick. They were cut to shape with a bandsaw and have the shoulder design up top as somewhat depicted in my laughable diagram lol. I can certainly snap a pic and upload it when I'm at the boat after the weekend, it's a pretty simple mod that works awesome.
The only caveat I found with it is because there is a sheet of plywood under the cushion it's somewhat harder to access the storage underneath compared to the starboard side where it's just a cushion I can fold up out of the way. But the small issue is far outweighed by the larger bed access. Also under the plywood is a small strip of thin carpet (think thinner than astroturf) so it slides smoothly in and out.
Some youtube videos, nothing fancy
