Chart Stowage Solutions (Pub. No. 5075)

(Includes plans for  4 chart cases and desks)

From the instructions for the first case: It is almost impossible to keep a chart flat for working after it has been rolled or folded for some time. Thumb tacks, weights or what not are of little avail, so, if the charts are to be ready for use on a cruiser they must be kept flat and worked on a flat surface. A vertical chart file will provide for filing the charts flat and can be raised to a horizontal position for working where it forms a chart table of suitable size. The largest charts are 26 inches by 48 inches, the other varying according to locality and the scale used. Collect your charts, lay them together to best advantage and make the case 2 inches wider and 3 inches higher than the largest one with a depth of 2 inches. Perhaps it might be advisable to make one reinforced fold in the largest ones for convenience in case size.

How to Design and Build Berths and Dinettes (Pub. No. 5639)

A variety of designs for convertible and fixed berths and dinettes. Here's an excerpt from the discussion of pipe berths; (the berth any experienced sailer will choose over any other if given a choice.) "Almost any type of upper berth which swings into position for use may be included in the pipe berth classification, whether pipe enters into the construction or not. The conventional pipe berth forms a back rest for the lower berth which serves as a seat by day. For comfort the berth must be longer than the occupant, not less than 30 inches wide and must not sag appreciably before morning. However, available space will determine the dimensions."
