Lived aboard an alberg 30
for a year, much of it with a girlfriend, while refitting. The v berth was sealed off with plastic sheeting, the shelving had no doors or edges and under the settee was no good at the start. We had scrap memory foam to start with and a half a shelf above port side settee each.
I found a good hanging closet organizer from Ikea, even had little zip up drawers that folded flat for storage, with extras for sale
. little side pockets and a series of Velcro loops on the side. Hung it from the hand rail over the foot of a settee. Added a small side strap to make it easier to open and close drawers and stop it from swinging. Company over, undo the Velcro over the rail, move to hanging locker or bed
Held everything from clothes to spare toilet paper. Folds totally flat.
Girlfriend at the time laughed at how excited I was to find it, worth every penny.
Hanging cloth single
shoe rack, cut the bottom short, hangs right near the hull
in the hanging locker.
Never understood the vacuum bag thing, tried them. Many inexpensive and good dry bags have one way vents, squish to get air out, and they last for years.
Round dry bag same length as width of settee+ cloth cover = a bolster. Roll clothes to fill.
Reusable plastic/waterproof shopping
bags+ 2 small hooks on one handle = hanging storage bins in the odd space behind the settee back.
Stick a closed cell foam pad behind each to keep them off the hull
Found a dish drying pad, thin foam core
, super absorbent microfiber cloth both sides. Takes no space, much better than a dish rack.
brush with soap in the handle, dish soap refill stored under galley
Msr aluminium anodized camping pot with strainer lid. Cooks anything that didn't go in the cast iron frying pan.
Victorinox 8" chefs knife. Good enough for commercial
kitchens, does almost every job. Chuck the rest.
Same as above paring knife, x4. Works for paring, doubles as eating knives, and handy utility knife once ugly(4$)
10" scalloped serrated knife, good multipurpose blade, easy to sharpen.
Mag safe blade protectors, let you stow knives anywhere.
The above 3 knives do it all, I spent a year in a commercial
kitchen with nothing else, saves so much space without the clutter.
