Bed and board

I visited Barn Owl yesterday, taking with me three large boxes packed with an assortment of kit for our life aboard Caxton; from crockery and kettle to life jackets and satellite dish. We are only a few weeks away from completion so it was a chance to sort those last few things and look at the progress. In the photo above you are looking towards the stern from the saloon and in front of you is the back of the dinette with two cupboards beneath.
Here, the back of the dinette has been lowered into the occasional bed position. The desmo table support will be removed and the table-top lowered into the gap, cushions arranged and hey presto, a bed! This dinette takes up 5' of boat length ( most take 6' - 6'6") but converts to a 6'6" bed.
