Hi Adrian
No pics (and its not pretty as the wood is literally salvaged) but all it is is a solid wide platform made by laying the timber from side bench to side bench bridging the cockpit. They are of different lengths (6 pieces in total) but butted up to each other they made a bed space pretty much the entire length of the cockpit. Not sure of the World layout so it may be irrelevant. They did stack under the foredeck nicely. Each piece is perhaps a foot wide apart from a short piece nearest the mast. Not sure what tent you have but we have masses of headroom with a mk3 style. Other advantage is at dawn you don’t even need to sit up to look out the window. Obviously its bulky and heavy but I do rate the comfort without our low thwart. For me it was an experiment to see if it works, and it does.
