During a discussion this summer we came to the realization that for us, the table and front seat amount to a lot of wasted space and might be better utilized for storage. I have quickly mocked up a concept and wonder what your thoughts are on it? We would still be able to use the rear table seat for the two of us if needed with a hinged table top. The upper and lower areas of the cabinet would have doors and shelving etc for storage of clothes, gear etc. Nothing would change structurally on the boat so it could easily be switched back if we end up not liking it. Interested in your feedback.
We did something similar with our M. Built a cabinet and place to put the cooler on the seat area. Worked for us for a couple years until we bought a fridge. The cabinet was dismantled and returned to seating. Even though we still just use it for storing stuff. Lol. I found it is best to have an idea of what you will store in an area before designing it. I say go for it.

Welcome to MYCBC
Welcome to the home of the Macgregor Yacht Club of British Columbia. We are a group of present and past Macgregor Yacht and Tattoo Yacht owners. Most of our members are in British Columbia, Canada, although we do have members from other places in Canada and the USA.
We organize on and off the water activities for owners of Macgregor and Tattoo boats; regattas, cruises, flotillas and our annual all member get together ‘MacRendezvous’. Members share tips, ideas, and hard-come-by knowledge about how to maximize the joy of owning these wonderfully affordable boats.
The basic, free sections of this website is open for all to enjoy.
You can register for free to have additional access to public forum where you can communicate with the club and can be included in emails that the club sends to members and registered users related to upcoming activities.
