Beneteau 411 Aft Cabin convert to storage

Hello All,
Has anyone ever tried to convert one of the aft cabins to a storage area? What were some of your primary considerations, and how did it work out in the end. What might you have done differently.
Thanks in advance and Happy Sailing...

Re: Beneteau 411 Aft Cabin convert to storage

I lived aboard my Jeanneau 36i for over two years, one year in Washington, DC and the balance in San Diego. The DC assignment was "coat and tie" and I converted the quarter berth aft into a hanging locker. The berth cushion was already in two sections, so I flipped the outboard section over onto the inboard section which was mostly under the cockpit. Click image for larger version

I cut a wooden closet rod to length and, if I remember correctly, made a vertical wood support for the middle of the rod. Suits, dress shirts, and ties went on the rod. I organized other clothing in duffle bags atop the cushions. Simple, cheap, and easily returned to the quarter berth configuration.
