I am posting to myself, this thread! <grin>

I remembered what Rob talked about with having folding chairs, decided
that we could use a drop leaf table that could be repositioned,
depending on how many people were using it. We might need to allow for
a max of 10 people, but there is a good chance that only 4-6 will be
eating at one time (maybe just that many on the boat, maybe some went
ashore, different watches, etc). So, I have redrawn my deck layout and
will be posting it as "Charter Proa deck idea(trimmed)" because this
does make it smaller. Looking for comments.
