Columbia 36 Sailboat Storage

The Columbia C36 sailboat has a lot of storage available.  The only problem is that it is hidden behind the settee, under the stove, under the navigation station seat, and a lot of other places.  Columbia, I guess, never intended this boat to be used for extended sailing, so they never opened up the additional storage areas that are under and behind all the molded interior areas.

Here are a few pictures of one of the areas that I opened up this weekend.  A bit of simple engineering and we can store a LOT of additional items.  Food and other stores, as necessary.
