Creating some space
05/02/2008, Redwood City, CA

You hear it over and over... There is never enough space on a boat. We are constantly amazed at the creative ways cruisers make space for stuff on their boats. On Follow you, Hunter saw fit to not provide any decent place for full size books. While there is a bookshelf in the forepeak above our bunk, it doesn't easily deal with full size books like Chart #1, Nigel Calders World Cruising Routes and boat documentation.

In a spurt of creative energy one night this week, I decided to reconfigure the shelves underneath the navstation desk to accept full size binders and books. Unfortunately I didnt take a before picture but it basically was 3 compartments, only one of which would accept full size books and it was only 5 inches wide. I got out the trusty jigsaw and cut out the dividers, creating one big shelf and re-purposed the shelf fiddle to keep the books in place in heavy seas.

Now my trusty manuals are close at hand...
