Re: Galley counter top material
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?
I'd snicker audibly if there were any of these on board:
* Cored panels
* Carbon fiber anything
* High modulus lines
* High modulus sail fabric
* Mattresses lacking inner springs
But perhaps my priorities are misplaced.
I've had both laminate and gelcoat. My PDQ has gelcoat over a cored panel, which seems smart. Both did fine in the long run. Heck, they last through decades of daily home use, generally going out of style before wearing out.
