Vberth Storage

The mattresses are remove here to show the structure underneath. The two hatches are open. There are two hatches so that only one mattress has to be lifted in order to gain access to the compartment. You can also see the plywood bulkhead and the 1 1/2" by 1 1/2" wooden rim around the opening. The plywood bulkhead supports the vberth and holds the foam forward of it. (the 88 has foam under the front bunk) (89 on boats have the foam up at deck level) The bulkhead is fastened to the frame of the hole. The red item in the picture is a spare 3 1/2 gal gas can. This sits on a shelf in the compartment.

In this picture you can see the screws every 6" that hold the wood frame to the fiberglass. You can also see the plastic bin that keeps things dry.The bin is 16 by 22 1/2 and 12 " high.The hole that was cut in the fiberglass was 16 1/2 by 45 1/2. The wood was notched so that the 1/2' plywood covers would fit flush with the bunk.
