Hints and Tips



Saloon and Cockpit Table and other upgrades

- Sun Odyssey 42.1


New Saloon Table

Above are photos of my new "modified" salon table. I bought the table hinges from Erik at Jeanneau America and cut the factory table to this configuration.


New Cockpit Table

Here are a few photos of the cockpit table I designed and built for my SO 42.1. It is made of "King Starboard" material and will hold two bottles of wine securely.


The mount is a Whitlock table mount that required very minor modifications.


New counter tops

The formica counter tops in the galley was showing it's age. I have been very impressed with the granite I had installed in the kitchen in my home so I decided to install granite 12"x12" tiles over the formica. I also replace the two round galley sinks with one stainless double sink.


New companionway doors

I have never been a fan of the lift out companion way doors that were on the boat. Hence I built a pair of conventional type teak doors. I love them!
