Dining table - How to lower

Postby Grimsby_Alan » Fri Jul 13, 2018 6:59 am

I've been trying to figure this out for a few weeks now. Feeling a little foolish but here goes..... How does one lower the table to convert the dinette into a berth? My pole is one solid piece and i cannot get the table to lift off the pole nor can i get the pole to lift out of the base. I have the insert cushions and there is a hook to attach it to the bench when it's lowered so I'm assuming it's meant to drop. Any advice would be appreciated.

Which boat is it? They must all be different because our 40/40 has a bord that slides out from under the settee and locks in place with a pin. The dining table is not involved.

She's a Hoyt 32. The table should drop down into the horseshoe shaped dinette to create another berth. I cannot seem to get the post to release at either end.

Lift the top off, then unscrew the base and fit the table into slots. If u can't get top off, use liquid wrench or other to loosen it. My 32 doesn't have any hook.

The post is well seized into both the top and the base. Haven't thought about unscrewing it. I'll try some PB Blaster tomorrow and see what happens. Thanks for the tip. The hook is on the underside of the table and matches up with the loop on the side of the bench where the seat can be attached
