Remove dinette in 22' Bambi Sport?

I am interested to see if anyone has completely removed the dinette and replaced with 2 chairs and cabinet in between?

we removed the post under the table and replaced it with a lagum arm made for a boat. It is cantilever bolted to the wall under the bench and stiffly bolted on both sides.

now the table has far less wiggle than the old sliding one with the post on the floor where your feet want to be

I am going that route. I found the chair and storage ottoman, and designed the cabinet. Appointment at Mothership in November.

I fooled around with that idea and spent some money on a couch conversion, but ultimately just a smaller teak marine table made a world of difference, the space much more useable, and enjoyable.

I went in a different direction. I moved the base over like others did on this forum and then bought a remnant of corian type countertop material and made the table less wide and longer. The Corian is 1/2 inch thick so I added some leftover oak hardwood floor to fit the square aluminum mount and glued the Corian to the wood with 2 part epoxy. I removed the slide and now when and if I make a bed I turn the table and there's only a half inch lump. We enjoy playing cards and games on rainy days and this table is so much more useful now !

Iím anxious to see the final results! Are you looking to sell your original cushions?

Yes. I'll have the pedestal table as well, or the whole dinette.

Can you still convert the table to a bed using this arm? Did you use the same table?

I saw a 22FB for sale in the forums 3 years ago while shopping for our first AS that had the dinette removed. They used a fold out table like they use to use in the older classics or you see in a small private jet, centered over the wheel well.

I'm "re-posting" my question as it didn't get attached to your post.
With that said.....Can you still convert the table to a bed using this arm? Did you use the same table?

I've been watching this for a awhile now and have decided to make this a "winter project".

My custom cabinet top is hinged to open up. The table and legs nestled inside. Table can hang on front edge of cabinet sticking out full 35", or partway (24"), or freestanding behind chair between cabinet and bed. Chair is swivel and not bolted down. Ottoman is storage and heavy duty as 2nd seating.
