A simple way to keep crockery secure and quiet

Be the first to comment

What is the issue?
A boat in motion is not a friendly habitat for crockery. It needs to be stowed in secure and tailored seats to prevent it falling about and breaking. These seats need to be tight if not tailored to the specific crockery. Otherwise crockery slide and shuffle about. On a long rolling leg this can be hard on the nerves, particularly so for off watch crew who are trying to rest down below.

Why address this?
Securely stored crockery will provide a lifetime of service and remove an irksome noise below decks.

How to address this?
The simplest technique to tailor fittings for a specific set of crockery is the traditional peg and board approach presented in figure 1.

All that is required is a wood bit and a dowel rod to create snug fitting secure and quiet crockery.
