Re: Galley counter top material

formica gets dings and gouges easily--was used extensively in the 50s-70s in tract housing. is a pita, as it isnt durable and not beautiful for quality work. is a poor tribute to the builders who used the cheapo materials to save dough and offer boats at mid income pricing.
i will mebbe go to corian or granite, as that extra weight is not a problem with my heavy displacement cruiser. maybe be impractical on a racing boat, but this aint that....
