    For those of us who need to wear bi-focal glasses or other problems slipping a piece of ply wood or other material about 14 inches by 12 inches under a monitor stand or laptop is handy.

    Sliding this back and forth can bring your work on a desk or table closer to help strong bi-focal viewing and swiveling left or right to reduce glare.

    I have seen so many people leaning forward to view the screen and sitting in uncomfortable positions.

    Yes, but wouldn't a cathedral hull shaped plywood monitor stand, be more stable with less desk draft? . . . ;)

    At a Traditional Small Craft outing at a lake that was flat calm and no wind and watching a very roomy comfortable flat bottom B..boat just idling along..suddenly the craft capsized almost completely up side down and all contents and a couple of passengers were in the water for no apparent reason.
    Of course there was a reason which you may be able to work out.

    I have always been quite amazed that a boat designer, and popular with some could sell plans for such a boat and endanger so many lives and spoil the enjoyment of so many people for boating.

    Mind you it did have a mast similar to telegraph pole.
    I still have picture I think I will have a look.
