      I have a hard time putting
      it in words, but I have seen
      a swinging pivot stick on
      an antique table leaf I used
      to have...a simple detail which
      would work, and I intend to copy.
      When the leaf is flipped out, the
      pivot stick swings and wedges the
      leaf tight in the flipped out position.

      Initially thought that 'down' was
      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:
