The galley on my boat is fairly well centered. Because I use a Dickenson Diesel stove with a large charley noble it can't be gimballed. So the stove is forward right by the mast (almost midships) in the lowest part of the boat where it heats the entire boat. (It is also the heat source) Aft of the stove are the sinks (almost midships). The U shaped counter runs around the port side between the two. You can see it here:
There is a tide in the affairs of men,
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
Shakespeare, Julius Caesar IV, iii, 217
