Cockpit Storage Dimensions Needed
« on: March 13, 2014, 04:31:45 PM »
Hi all,

I just left my boat yesterday in La Paz, BCS, and wont be back for a while.  I meant to measure the widths of the fore, aft, and port-side cockpit locker lids.  My plan is to fit fiddles to these three sides that will hold a board in place while anchored.  I could then use the space to the left of the helm as an extra berth/lounging area.

I have a 1979 44 WO.  Could any of you help me out with the measurements of the widths of these three locker/lazarette lids?

I'll post pics of the project if it turns out well.  

Thanks in advance.

Cheers, Bill

Hi Bill, I just got back to this site for the first time in a long time as I'm finally changing my Crosby refer over to Frigoboat. I saw this post and coincidentally have just cut a piece of plywood and have been glassing over before ill coat with bright side hatteras off white and mount fiddles  on those 3 sides. I figure the cutout will live on underside of engine hatch or maybe under aft companionway ladder. This is the second piece of wood I cut as measurements were off first one. Do you have a direct email, I'll send pics and board measurements, and you can improve upon my simple design. I have lots of project stuff to upload to Dropbox, just need to get around to it.
Cheers,
Steve

Hi Steve, thanks for your offer.  It's funny that we never got together in the year and aHalf that I was in Channel Islands Harbor.  I used to paddleboard by your boat, but never caught you aboard.  I would greatly appreciate the info for your cockpit bunk project.  You can reach me at  whiteyfish@charterdotnet.

Thanks and cheers, Bill
