Updating a 25′ Watkins Sailboat with new Cushions and a Canvas Magazine Rack

Room on a 25′ sailboat is at a premium. Add the fact that she had her original cushions from the 70’s, and you have one small time-machine.

First we re-covered the cushions with a Sunbrella fabric that had a two-tone, brown speckled pattern that suited the male owner to a tee. Next we covered the unsightly salon table with a canvas magazine rack.

The rack snaps to the bottom of the table when it is in the up position. Pockets are different depths so that the owner can store magazines, books and even large Chart Books. When the owner needs the table down, the rack can be moved with the contents in tact to a set of snaps along the top of his Head door. This makes for easy transformation without the need to empty the rack each time.
