When we bought our CM38cc the table was placed rather ridiculously about 6″ away from the mast post so was impossible to get around from the forward end. I ruminates for a year on how to correct, all the while NOT relishing the work of building a new table.
As well as being badly placed, it was too low, to the point where it was nearly impossible to skootch your thighs under it.
A light finally went on and I realized that when I added blocking (2 layers of 3/4″ ply) to the underside to raise the table, I could also relocate the brackets to provide clearance at the mast post. It all worked like a charm!
