Re: Galley counter top material
Agreed, starboard is not good countertop material. If its a do-it-yourself project, I recommend going to Home Depot or similar and see what scraps they have available from a recent home installation. Could be anything from formica, to corian to stone, or even the thin fake corian laminated to plywood. Often, they are more than big enough to do a boat galley. If you do use something that has a wooden back, I would seal it with penetrating epoxy.
A slab of stone, 100-200 lbs (or more?) of added weight, several feet above the boat's ballast and maybe off-center.
Does anyone else see a problem here?
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
