Lowering the Salon Table

One of the minor challenges we encountered on Ghost Rider was figuring out how to lower the salon table down to the level of the surrounding seats.  Why you ask?  Well, there were levers on the post that indicated it was supposed to....and there was this vague idea that it could be turned into a sleeping area for the grandkids.

It took several days of soaking the pedestal in "Kroil" lubricant, followed by all kinds of bouncing on top of the table, but we finally got it to move to its lowered position.  On the latest boat trip with the kids aboard we developed a new technique, pictured here.
