What is the issue?Finding storage for small to medium objects is a challenge. They typically get lost or buried in the larger main lockers which can be tiresome.
Why address this?Optimising storage makes it easier to find just what you want when you need it, making life that bit more relaxed.
How to address this?If the companionway steps lend themselves to it, adding drawers beneath them as presented in figure 1 provides excellent additional storage.
The key to adding a drawer to steps is not to take it the whole way down to the lower step that often shortens the steps depth. Finishing it above as presented permits the full depth of the step to be used and allows toe slot for a bracing grip.
