Re: The Galley - Must Haves, Don't Needs & Wish List

Congrats. I am good friends with the previous owners of Zephyr. Incredibly nice folks.

We live aboard in portland and are also members of CYC.

Answers to your question.

Need(for us at least):
- Home size galley sink and faucet with pullout sprayer. Many boat sinks are so small normal sized plates do not lie flat. Very difficult to wash and rinse cooking pans too.
- Under sink cold water filter.
- Folding dish rack
- Conventional SS cutlery and melamine dishes. No reason of plastic or paper.
- Can crusher

Not needed:
- Microwave

Previous owner added the shelf and microwave above the sink. We occasionally use the MW but mostly use it for storage.

Some other easy upgrades we did to make life easier. Pneumatic struts to hold up icebox lids. Built in dishwashing soap dispenser.
