Lee Cloths for the Cabin

Lee Cloths

Needed to make a couple of good sea berths. I added in lee cloths.

For attachments I replaced the acorn nuts at the chainplates with eye nuts.

I liked the lee cloths and got to thinking about extending the concept to the upper shelves. They have huge benefits up there. No more stuff leaping off the shelf. Plus you can overstuff them with blankets, bread, veggies or tool bags and they are like little hammocks. Still easy to put stuff up there but nothing comes out unless you grab the edge of the cloth and pull it down. My first inclination was woodwork and cabinetry, but this is lighter, less visually imposing, and lets you see what you have stored away.
