stuff on the floor

All the furniture on the floor hardly makes it useful............

For our high-low table in the salon, we use a bungie with an eye at the satee. For the chairs and table, nothing. They may move a little but not enough that they need to be secured plus they donít weigh much. We have furniture felt pads on the feet but thatís more to protect the floors. If we didnít have paravanes we would have to rethink it probably.

We have a Benchmaster that folds out the leg rest when you need it. Saves some space when you don't need a foot stool. Comes in various fabrics and colors.

Our salon has an L shape sofa that is heavy. We have found out that we have to strap the sundeck furniture down when we are in open ocean water. We just use ratchet straps and bungee cords.

So you proved you can fall over in a chair anywhere. You do know people do that on land as well.

We minimize light weight loose furniture and it all has nearby secure storage. Deck lounge chairs can be placed in holders in a couple of minutes.

I like our catnapper dual recliner loveseat with drink holders in between. It is electric and will stop at any position. Instead of wood frames, they have steel frames for durability.

The Furniture Warehouse and it is doing great.

Benchmaster Swivel Reclining Chair in Java Breathable Fabric

You can save the space of a separate foot rest by getting one where it flips up from under the seat.

We have them under a couple of recliners at home as well as on the boat. Sold in Home Depot and Lowes and a wide variety. Can't be seen but sure reduce movement.

Yes, for boats our size and when traveling in open water, making sea ready with tie downs etc is necessary. I can never find time to use something like a nice recliner when the boat is moving, to much to do and boat things to watch.

Sitting on the enclosed fly bridge in a hard PNW rain reading a book or strategizing for the next day's run is pretty nice though. Especially if I can escape doing the dishes.

"but generally a whole bunch of other loose stuff is more at risk than our furniture."

The most common "loose stuff" is the folks on board,

with no inside hand grips on many boats it can be a wall to wall bounce from a stray wake,or sea conditions.

There should not be a location inside that can not be accessed while hanging on to something substantial.

Looks like you rebuilt the port side of your AT34, just the way you want it.

Where do the guests sleep? LOL
Never make the guest too comfortable or they will never leave.

If I had a comfortable recliner on board, there would be no reason for me to use the fwd berth. At home, more than a few times I have awakened in my "evil recliner", with the sunlight pouring in through the window. Sit in it for "just a few minutes" and it sucks the 'awake' out of me.
