Re: Midships galley? Pros/Cons

I think a linear galley can work, esp at anchor.. maybe not so much at sea. But a proper U shaped galley that's useful, effective and usable at sea requires space that the average 30ish footer can't provide.

I'd say if YOU"RE OK with the loss of seating, down the road you'll appreciate the larger galley, though if extended passages are in the cards, finding a way to secure the cook in a seaway will be more challenging.
