A side affect of making a slide out birth from the bench in the wheel house is that the stool would have to go. The stool can not be folded and there is nowhere to practically store it. I spent loads of time looking online for a folding stool. I was close to buying a ‘directors chair‘ and I really like the 3 leg folding stool – but nothing was quite right. So I made one. This stool is as much for leaning on as for sitting. It folds up super easy (just swing in the middle leg), fits nicely behind the wheel… and fits in with the look of the boat.
Made a modification. Removed the chain holding the 3rd leg and replaced it with a stick of wood. This holds the 3rd leg in both directions and is stronger.
