Default Re: Bench seat - making a 3-seater into a 2-seater

Wheeljack: Wonderful job on your galley and dining booth! I'm wondering if you put the new bench in the 1.5 position, or 2? I had originally wanted to do what you've done, but changed directions due to time constraints.

Thanks for reporting, AND including your pics... your sewing machine rocks!

Thanks!

It is a snug fit. I haven't measured but with the curvature of the wall, it is a little under 19.5" at the top of the counter. I made the cabinet 19.5" deep, so it pushes into the cushion a bit. I shaved it down to add more clearance, but since I wanted the CFX50 to be nearly flush, I had to keep room to access the door, which is already pushing it. All made with the super light 80/20 1" Quickframe. It turned out more solid than I was expecting, which is a nice surprise. I wanted everything lightweight and easily removable.

Thanks, I had a great teacher!

Anyway, the bench is roughly in 1.5 position. My cargo had no mounts, so I drilled and used fender washers to distribute the load. I am comfortable with their integrity.

I say roughly 1.5 because it was mainly to allow ~78" inch bed length.
