A couple of years ago we added some shelves to C'est la Vie's main cabin - photos from shelf project. During the installation, I had visions of adding a wooden bar across the front of the shelves to keep the contents from evacuating during rough conditions. Since the installation the bars have never materialized and fortunately we have met with only a couple of evacuations. Dings on the cabin sole from large dry boxes flying off the starboard top shelf serve as evidence of the danger of flying dry boxes.
The solution came to me while sewing straps for the foredeck awning. The most time consuming aspect of the solution was running to town for the supplies...
I sewed the buckles to the webbing to create a more clean look.
