Okay I must be being a dope but on the 1968 Commander 31 where does the dining table go for storage when the seats are made into the bed? The boat is cleverly designed but can’t figure that one out

If you find out, let me know. 

I always wondered if it was supposed to go under the bunk behind the metal pipe.  Someone once called the pipe a blanket pole???

There's no good place to put it. Leave it at the dock is best I've come up with. Mine really only comes out off season though. 

It slides in underneath the bunk on the floor.

Mine would not fit there.

Not sure about the 31, for the 35 it fits on the floor below the seats.  The seats overhang the base sufficiently so it can lay on the floor.

For the 31 there is not enough room between the seat bases and the end would stick out half way across the companion way that going from the v-berth to the head you will break your ankles

Yep, poor design.

If you ever wanted to, the table can be modified to fold somewhat like a tray table on an airplane and store on the wall.

Another way to modify could be to make table have 2 piano hinges(like a sail boat settee  table)

Then get a  ,collapsible pedestal leg that would allow table to collapse into the floor

A third possibility would be to remove the seat slides (honesty they are clunky at best anyway)

And allow the table to drop down onto a ledge so it would just be under the cushions if using as a bunk

That's how it works on the 27 - the table becomes the base for the seat cushions. 

That's how my Catalina was too.

On mine, the PO put rubber feet on the table so it could be stored on the galley counter top.  Works pretty well unless you have to use the sink in the middle of the night.
