Major head and chest cold right now so using the down time to update the blog as it has been a couple of months. I usually try to update once a month as work does take time on boats and that usually gives me something substantial to post.
Here is the galley pretty much done. Some little details and of course there is hooking up the plumbing and stove etc but right now I am just concentrating on the woodwork.
The ash flip up counter the bridges between the ice box and galley adds considerable counter space and allows someone to work on the fwd side while someone can work at the galley side.
Here can be seen the ash knife block behind the stainless flip up lid. The knife block is removable so it is easy to make a new one if necessary. The stainless lid gives quick access to the shelf below rather than having to reach all the way through the lower door opening
Bronze rod retainer pin for ash flip up counter.
Behind the stove is an ash flip up lid for a deep bin that can hold pots etc. There is also a place behind for storage and a shelf as well. It took me some time to decide how to build the outboard area of the galley but am pleased with the sliding door cabinet and this area behind the stove. Lots of practical storage.
