A spare washboard can be useful for mounting a chartplotter

If you’re looking for somewhere to mount things temporarily in the cockpit, consider making a replacement lower washboard that can slide into the companionway. It’s a great, secure place to mount a chartplotter for when you want it in the cockpit, or cockpit speakers if you don’t fancy cutting two large holes in the boat. You can even attach cup-holders to it – the possibilities are endless – and all without drilling a single hole in your pride and joy!
