More Ways to Store Glasses

If you've got a shallow storage locker, here's an easy way to turn it into secure storage for glassware . . . or maybe wine bottles?

Aboard The Cat’s Meow, I saw the clever storage they’d created for glasses . . . and took several pictures.

Basically, it’s a “second shelf” with circular cutouts about 2″ above the primary shelf.  Robin and Martin had several very shallow storage lockers that worked perfectly for glasses.  You could do the same basic idea with a higher secondary shelf for bottles of wine, vinegar and so on.

In the photo below, you can see where Robin has wrapped some smaller wine glasses with rags so that they’ll fit tightly in the holes and not break.

  1. Our boat came with a setup like this from the previous owner. I thought at first it was a kind of a pain, but it has turned out to be a great way to store glassware. No clinking, no shifting, no wrapping each glass in a protective cover. It was worth it to replace some smaller glasses with ones that “filled the holes” tighter so they wouldn’t shift.

    The boat would have to heel over more than 90 degrees for the glasses to fall out.

    I use a glasses rack for stem glasses. Each glass has a stubby cooler on it. Stores the stubby/can cooler too. Elastic hair ties keeps glasses on the rack even in storms..

  3. was it wood or starboard

  4. we’ve got a locker in our salon with different size holes…..

  5. I’ve used thick leftover foam. Cut an x (or larger) to fit any glass. Plus, it then doesn’t make any noise like glass on wood does.
