Some new furniture arrived for Euphemia. Keeping an eye on the need for flexibility I ordered a single folding chair for the helm. This will replace the two bar stools – which can not fold away. The large (folding) table can make a nice bench for 2 or 3 at the helm (when folded down) but I suspect that this new chair will get used most often.
I want dining options say for; 2, 4, and 6. The 6 is the large folding table (to be primarily located in the wheel house folded down). The 4 is the smaller, fixed, table (to be primarily located in the aft cabin). The 2 is the new folding table I just received. This, along with the two new folding chairs will replace the wicker stuff that used to be located in the cockpit. Two more folding chairs will be stowed away and used as needed (ie when dining 3 or more in the wheel house).
Total: 3 tables and 5 chairs of which all are folding except for mid-sized table.
I am sure that there will be times when some of this furniture is not taken on a cruise – just depends upon needs.
