One of the ways Catalina made the 309 a little more "affordable" was having open shelving along the sides of the main cabin instead of using closed lockers like those on most of the larger boats (and the new 315). I've never liked the shelves, as they become a collecting point for all sorts of stuff, and can really look messy and disorganized. As a winter project, I'm contemplating closing in the shelves with proper lockers with louvered doors (don't care for the flush doors on the 5 series). Has anyone else done this? Pictures? Ideas? My son is a professional cabinetmaker with a full shop, so will be enlisting his help.
