Settee supports, port. After 30 years, it is time to consider the wood that supports the settees aboard INDIGO. We knew something was wrong when we kept falling through when we sat on the settees! Our support bases are plywood covered with a white (chipped!) plastic-y material. There are openings with thumb-holed covers. Over the years, moisture has caused them to de-laminate at a few of the edges and the supports for the opening covers are shot. We are unsure whether to fabricate all new or repair the old.
