F30 aft cabin bunk plywood mod

Post by Stephen_H »

I have the aft cabin taken apart on my F30 right now. The large piece of plywood that serves as the base of the aft cabin bunk is a bear to remove and move around, so I'm contemplating how to improve it.

Here are the options I'm considering:

1. Cut the plywood lengthwise (fore/aft), just starboard of the center support. The port piece would attach the same as the current large piece. For the starboard piece, attach a new supports on each side (on the center support and the bulkhead. That way I can detach and remove in two manageable sections.

2. Cut the plywood widthwise (port/stbd) into strips and turn it into support slats with webbing to keep the slats together. Then add a support strip along the bulkhead. Would be able to roll it back as necessary to get to storage, and completely roll up for removal. Something like this:

Anyone done a similar modification, have an opinion, or know a better method?
