    turn the centerboard case onto the horizontal and you can tell your wife its a writing shelf
    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    You could always build an ama for it, and make it a proa desk. I'd imagine shunting would be preferable to tacking in a desk.

    Actually, I'll be building a proa like extension to hold the printer...
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.
