extended V berth

Published date: April 1, 2008
  • Boat Type: Boat Type

I was always unhappy with the V berth being too short for two people, always having legs fight at the tip. I decided to extend it and in the same time gain some additional storage.
As you can see from the picture, using marine grade plywood, I continued front port side seat all the way to starboard side. I added a middle vertical board that divided storage to one deep in the middle and shallow one on top of starboard seat that I will use for documentation and charts. The hardest part as always was making templates so everything will fit. Now my V berth is longer for 16" at the starboard side and much more comfortable for two people.
