Folding Cockpit Table

Post by Hooky » Tue Apr 21, 2020 4:17 am

Hi all, I have received a number of questions regarding the folding hinged cockpit table so I removed the table for some close up pictures, I hope this assists those who would like to construct their own. Cheers Terry

Laminated folding cockpit table, hinged to forward side of steering pedestal just below main sheet hitching point. Table can be used in two configurations either narrow position or folded out to a wide position. I also installed a sliding duel cup holder that prevents spills and gives more table room. Hope you enjoy the mod.

Well done - very handsome!

And thanks for adding this to the Mods section, too!

For new members, there’s also a “Mods” section of this site which catalogs tons of modifications that have been to Macs and Tattoos by their owners over many years. Have a look:

Why, yes, they are. But they’re not also incredibly handsome.

Nice Mod, I really like it. I still have the stock cockpit table, made of super-slippery plastic with no fiddles, and maybe 8" wide.

I'd like to do something like this, but at this point every pound of weight gives me pause. I had my daughter, her boyfriend, my wife and three kids on the boat last year for lunch, and as I stood on the dock behind it, I noticed that the motor well drain was a good inch underwater. The three boys are only gonna get heavier, and I'm planning to add a 2HP kicker on the back.

So every lb. now gets considered carefully. I really want a nice cockpit table like that, but wood won't suit my needs. I can't work with carbon fiber, so if I am going to follow suit with a similar mod I need a super-lightweight material, I think. Until then, I'll just be jealous of your table.

That is amazing!

Without a doubt the best cockpit table for the Mac ever. The slide-out cup holder just adds even more functionality. AND it's wood, which out boats sorely lack.

That is correct. If you need to change a mod that you have posted in the past, PM Russ and as the overall administrator/owner of the website, he may be able to help you.
