Our 2004 387 was delivered with an athwartship aft bed. As advertised it was very long and my wife Linda and I fit in it quite well lengthwise. I am 6 ft 4 inches tall (or long depending if I’m vertical or horizontal) and had plenty of room. The issue of my wife and I using the head in the middle of the night caused us to think about changing the orientation of the bed to a centerline configuration.
Our boat is in a slip in Marina Del Rey, California, with access to the folks still in this area from the former Catalina factory. We started talking to our rigger, who does most of the commissioning of new Catalina’s at our dock. We talked about how we could extend the platform so we could fit in the bed back to front. We also needed our Webasto forced air heater vents
