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

On the filtering side of things we quite like our faucet mounted filter.. it allows us to selectively filter just the water we drink.. not all cold water we use. Easy change out too, and we generally run through only a couple of filters per season.

We've never missed a microwave, would probably ditch it if we bought a boat with one.

Melamine plates and cups here too, acrylic glasses.

The readily available non-skid matting for place mats, locker surfaces, table tops etc have proven invaluable. Buy it in rolls and cut to fit.

We also use a plastic tub that just fits in the sink for washing... saves water (volume-wise) and doesn't rely on the sink drain plug. Also a handy place to put dirty dishes in until you're ready to tackle the chore.
