My Table for the Sandpiper
Two boards of ¾ inch 11 ¼" x 47 ¼" held together by 2 hinges located 6 inches away from the ends. These 2 boards are maintained open by the leg which is 16 ½" x 8" and positioned at about 21" inches from the stern end of the table so as to rest on the front edge of the back seat cover. There are 2 hinges to hold this foot attached to the boards of the table. The axis of these hinges were removed and replaced by a hanger wire to facilitate the assembly.
The stern end of the table is attached to the traveler by mean of a U-shape piece 10 inches long. It is made from a square 1.5" x 1.5"x10" sandwiched by two 1/4" measonite pieces of 3 ¼" x 10". This U is inserted from the rear unto the traveler and then 2 top sections of 4 inches nails acting as pins are inserted in the front of the U through the table. The table is henceforth attached firmly to the traveler.
