One of the things I wanted to work out while aboard das Boot was how to turn the L-shaped setaing in the fore cabin into a bed. I have a feeling it was explained to me before das Boot became mine, but as all my visitors have been for the day only, it isn’t something I have thought about since.
However, this August, as I mentioned the other day, Sue is making a return visit across the pond, and we plan to spend a night or two afloat. Therefore, understanding how the transformation works has become rather more urgent.
Obviously, the clue lay under the seat cushions, but I wasn’t sure how. I was fairly sure I could rule the area on the right of this picture out as the engine is under there, also the switch to turn on the electrics on is under there meaning I am quite familiar with what lurks under that cushion, so it wasn’t exactly Miss Marple territory. If you look at the seat cushion under the window you’ll see it rests o a wooden base. That pulls out and fits into grooves. Very neat. I was feeling pretty pleased with myself.
So now it was just a question of sorting how to arrange the cushions to make a mattress. I didn’t do so well here.
So I should welcome anyone else with better spatial skills than I to tell me how to proceed.
MasterB had a look, but he didn’t come up with any suggestions.
