That's 'cus you're sitting on it all wrong. Don't approach it like a horse and throw your leg over it. Turn around and sit down, 'Dude!

I'd go for a tool chest/bar combo! Finish the work and open the bar. You're already there!!

Hang a sign with one side that says "MEN AT WORK" and the flip side "BAR OPEN"

Yup.

Nothing like buttery smooth skies in 20x24 prints from a 4x5 negative that will last for hundreds of years

Well, I would suggest you ask your bride what she thinks would be best in that nav station. Would she like a vanity? A place for the kids to play on their computers? Or a craft corner?

Let her decide.

Hmmmm.......

Since it was a NAV station me thinks it's on HIS side of the ledger.

Unless she is the navigator and was using it, which it doesn't sound like.

Nobody uses this nav table. We just blindly follow the little icon on the Garmin plotter.

Your kids would like a soda fountain/ice cream bar combo.

Huh. If it were free space on my boat, I know what it would have to be.

Small fridge with some taps and 5 gallon kegs of homebrew. Shelves for a bar over it.

The admiral would want a quilting room complete with Singer featherweight.

Jim. If your admiral is interested in a 1937 Featherweight, PM me. I'm planning on selling mine. I have both faceplates -- the flat stripes from the '37 and a '51 version with the scrolls.

What's wrong with it? Me. I am incapable of adjusting the tension properly. Every time it gets out of whack (now for instance) it means another trip to the sewing machine repair shop for a tension fix.

Comes with new bobbin, etc.
And love. Lots of love. I made this quilt with her at anchor one winter:

Chuckle! Lovely quilt! Quilters always are such nice people! She's already got one! She also has a more modern Bernina. I've told her though, she needs to finish her "Dear Jane" project. It's a Civil War reproduction quilt, all hand pieced. Some blocks with over 40 pieces of fabric.

If we lived aboard or took longer cruises that would make sense.

Your nav station divulges your boat's sailboat roots. Blow boaters need a nav station so they have an excuse to come in from the wet and cold. It serves no other purpose than to keep their charts onboard and their electronics safely out of harm's way and out of any useful distance from the helm.

That needs a power boaters appliance...ice maker, bar or extra fridge. I still like the tool chest idea, too. Don't surrender it to your wife. You'll never see it again!

Due to a 105' yacht sinking of Ft Lauderdale, apparently caused by too many, so they need another home. Check out the relevant thread.
