necessary to clear the swing of the
tiller, but you could swing the
tiller all the way to the side
to gain clearance flipping the
table top, so your idea of swinging
'up' is better.
One problem is that the step assembly
needs to lift out of the way to
make room for the port-a-potty. An
idea to deal with that might be to
have two 'finger jointed' fid shelves
mounted to each of the berth sides.
The step assembly would nestle in the
finger joints, giving the steps a
measure of stability suitible for
'stepping upon' while still being
removable and 'stowable'. See:
