Aloha,  I know this is an old thread but I just had my table cut down so it will swivel to let people in to sit down. It works for me !

Love it! I've been wanting to do thet but afraid I might need it for the sleeping space at some point...

    Even with a cut down table it still provides enough support with the center cushion in place for sleeping. My table is cut down even more than Susan's and it still sleeps just fine.

I have a smaller cocktail table & it works fine to support the cushion for turning the area into a bed.  The smaller table means it does not fully support the edges of the cushion but when laying down provides plenty of support.  It is possible to push a hand through the gap between the end of the cushions but it has not caused any safety issues.

Kevin's right.  And Ed's right.  The cushion's thickness and stiffness make up for almost any reasonable gaps.  Of course, if all you have is a really small cocktail table sized left, then probably not.  But most successful table modifications I've seen have left a substantial portion of the surface intact.

I noted this when I did my table mod by slicing 6 1/2 inches off the aft end.  And I did that finally after 18 years of using that cushion all of twice!  :D

Amazon is selling a SeaTeak small cockpit table for $284. and Defender has the large SeaTeak with fold out sides for $299. both a lot less than regular price right now.
