Can anyone point me toward a photo or video showing a deck someone constructed over the forward cockpit of a TI? I saw one several months ago but cannot remember where. It had one or more access ports for wet storage below and may have been an Australian innovation.

Not sure I'd want to possibly sacrifice sailing performance, but I think this guy has done exactly what you're asking for:

Thanks shadowfox. Modification Power has an interesting design which gives him quite a bit of standing space but it's not the mod I saw.

I want to combine supports for a Kamprite folding cot, ala Dan Oja:

with a wet storage space and a flat working space (when the cot is stowed) for cleaning fish, cooking, or just standing. When camping, I'll be solo, so I'll remove the forward seat. I also want to avoid cutting or drilling the boat to keep the mod completely reversible.

Thanks atcbill, you found it!
That's the design that inspired me but I had misremembered - It's from Punta Gorda, not Australia.

I just realized I confused atcbill's location with that of the fellow who posted his deck design on Facebook
