    2850 Command Bridge: Building the Bunk Beds-gctid352339

    I've seen a couple of these boat with the seatee / bunk beds replaced by cabinets. I think I need the seating, but the extra room is really nice too. Anyway, does anyone know what's involved in making a new seatee / bunk bed area should I decide that I need to sleeping and sitting space?

    Here's what Mike is refering to.

    The guy did a beautiful job on the cabinets, but eliminated the settee -slash- bunk bed.



    Here's Gary's Contessa with the settee and bunk.... (I believe that Gary's turns into a bunk).

      The more I look at Gary's, the crappier everything else looks.

      After showing my wife a bunch of pictures, she noticed me looking at Gary's and says, "OHHH, I LIKE that one!" Sorry honey .

        Mike, I don't dare show my wife Gary's boat.

        In fact, I'm going to back to the Completed Projects Section and I'm going to flag Gary's thread!

        That's just not fair to show pictures of something that cool!

          Mike, I removed the seating/bunk bed from the starboard side of my Victoria 2750. If you decide to proceed with the project, I'm happy to give them to you, if you can arrange and pay for shipping. They're in great condition and just need cabinets built under them. The upholstery is gray and hardly shows signs of use. The straps for the bunk bed are on them. Here is the thread describing the project. The seats are the ones previously located on the starboard side.

          They're sitting in my garage and waiting for a good home. PM me if you're interested.

            Wow, I love the reconfiguration you came up with. That's an incredible offer and to tell you the truth, may make the difference in my deciding to buy this boat. THANK YOU so much. I will be in touch and let you know what we decide to do.

            Thanks again.

              Thanks. The new galley space is working out very well; and since there is only three of us (myself, the admiral, and our son) when the boat is taken on overnight trips, losing the extra sleeping space was no biggie.

              I saved these seats because I knew somewhere down the line I'd come across someone who would need them. I'm happy to see them go to a good home.

                Very nice of you.

                If you don't mind, when you set up the bunks, how does the top one get supported? I've never seen them set up.

                  same thing happened to me. I'm voting we tie gary up and just move him from boat to boat..throw him a sandwich once in a while but don't let him go until he's done with all of them.:worth

                    The back rest (or top bunk) has two thick straps attached to it. Each strap has a hook on it. The original design on my boat used cheap aluminum clamps on the ceiling fastened by two thin bolts. When I replaced the ceiling, I removed those cheap clamps and installed eye bolts rated to 200 lbs each. Each bolt does penetrate from the ceiling to the flybridge floor, but all penetrations are enclosed in the box seating I built, so there is no visible sign they even exist. http://"http://www.baylinerownersclu... is the thread for the ceiling replacement. In the first picture, you will notice the original clamps, and in subsequent pictures you will see the eye bolts.

                      I agree!

                      I'll bet that Gary's ears are burning by now.
