Another option is to just remove the table.  Really opens up the cabin.  If not eating at the cockpit table, we ate on trays.  We don't play cards or games so it wasn't needed for that. Seldom needed the extra bed, if we did brought it to the boat for the duration.  Try it you might like it.

Yep.
This is close to what we do.
I made a new table using the original one as template with the side 2in. shorter for easier access around.
But this one sit in the aft room.
I made what we call our cocktail table, it's 12" x 16".  It make the inside bigger.

I assume that folding design, or any folding leaf design for that matter, excludes the use of the table as the base for a berth which the original design provides?
Regards,
Ed

Good point Ed. We have never used the table in the lowered position, but we have the cushion filler to convert the table to a berth.

I see no reason why a folding table could not be lowered, opened up (leaves that fold up or fold down) to complete the berth base.

I'll make sure my design does reach the bench edges on 3 sides for that purpose.

Our table is about 2" wider aft of the mast and I wonder if the original table top was like that? The extra width does not seem worth the limitation on the size of the aft leaf.

Is it just me?

For the past few months, it seems that I have an idea to do something and the next Mainsheet Mag, Good Old Boat Mag or Practical Sailor mag has an article on that very same subject.

This months Mainsheet has an article about the Cabin Table!

I'm moving ahead with this project. Fold up Leaf's will have Flap Hinges and Underside pull out supports. Still figuring surface - Like the light color of Formica, but the class finish of epoxy, and the ease of poly finish.

Does anyone have a picture of the Original table on a 1987 Mk 1 to share?

Thanks Mdid. (?)

Our table is nothing like that!

I'll post a pic as soon as I can.

We went the Defender route a couple years ago. We are lucky enough to get to the boat most weekends.
Having lived with the table for a couple of years, we still love it. Very good compromise between plenty of room in the dinette, and still a large enough table for eating or doing work. On a past thread I posted a picture soon after I installed it.

We're spending the weekend on the boat, so I'll take a load of cabin pics including the table.

My 1990 OME table has a teak ply/veneer, no formica.  I am going to make a smaller top similar to Stu's new cutdown model. . BTW, last week I replaced my cracked black acrylic sliders with formica/laminate-type product from Nevamar.. I picked a white color, (from a million whites available) that matched my other laminate surfaces aboard.  I reused the handles. Followed others advice on the Forum and glued two pieces back to back and it worked great.  Slides easily, is lighter weight, brighter, and gives the appearance of more space.

I always thought the table was just too big and we never used as a bed so I went the simple and cheap route.  I bought a big cutting board on amazon and a spray can of clearcoat and this has really opened up the cabin and made it much more comfortable when you have more than two people in the cabin.

Ok, 1st pic of our existing table.

Just so that you do not crank your neck trying to figure out the layout....

The table is about 13" higher than the original, because all of the surrounding seats are raised.

 :D

Here's a link to the rest of the pics

 :D Neither!

The PO added a raised floor beneath the tale, level with the original seat bases.
That 'deck' has a hole in it that allows the table to be lowered down to the 'new' seats.
Then he added bulkheads athwartships and parallel to the centerline to make additional storage just foward of the battery box (aft seat)

So we have to climb up to the seats.
The Fridge/Freezer compressor is foward of the midships, stbd side water tank, the vent for that is in front of the 'storage box'
