Saloon puzzle

Here is the completed picture of the saloon with the settee pulled in and the dinette folded down. After I took this picture I rounded some corners. Still to come is the lean back storage, and of course the walls and windows.
And here is a detail of the table leg in the down position, with the added plywood bits

 And here is the same leg in the upright position
Hopefully I have the photo editing figured out, and you can make sense of what I was trying to do here

A quick word on "Good Enough"

The working name for the triloboat I am building is "Good Enough", as in something that is good enough to get the job done properly, without regard for superfluous additions. I ran across a link to a boating blog with some similar thoughts and thought I would share.
If something is "Good Enough", it is not mediocre, but neither is it gold plated. Perfection is the enemy of Good Enough, life is too short to waste trying to build something perfect, as then there would be no time left to go sailing. So if my boat is water tight, safe and serves my purposes, without regard for resale value, it's Good Enough.
As a side note, in honour of another friend, I plan to name her dingy "Plan B"
