There’s a long-standing problem with Ocean Blue. She’s a beautiful boat, don’t get me wrong but, like all boats, she has her flaws.

The flaw to which I am referring – “She has no secure spot to put your beer can or wine glass while doing that sunset cruise.”

Enough! I have to devise a plan!

So, into the car and down to the boat we nip to take some quick [not so quick if you consider it’s a 220km round trip] measurements. (Note to self – time to move myself and the boat closer together!)

Universal drinks holder concept

I’m confident that idea will woork well, nestled in the aft cockpit. And all the bits and pieces needed are already either on board or in the workshop. It’s a plan!

Some more external wood to varnish. Whoopee!
