With the addition of a mounting base, the same table
that serves well in the main saloon also fits perfectly in
The Z-shaped leg is placed in this base. With the leg
pointing aft, the table is situated for dinner
Some years back, the Alberg 30 Association organized a
group purchase of a custom fabricated base for mounting the
table in the cockpit.
This base consists of a piece of 2-1/2" ID aluminum pipe welded onto
a flat square of aluminum. A hole is drilled through the
center of the square. An L-shaped extension was welded
onto the head of a 1/4-20 bolt.
A hole is drilled into the
cockpit inspection plate and tapped with a 1/4-20 tap.
This hole is normally kept closed with a bolt, but when
it's time to put the table in the cockpit for inviting
friends over to watch for the green flash, the base is
fastened to the inspection plate with the extended bolt.
