Re: Galley counter top material

Granite and marble can both crack from vibration. Most builders will require you to sign a waiver if you install a garbage disposal. This can probably be limited, if you select a stone with no vein. I have jarred about every boat I've ever sailed to the point that I could loosen teeth. Stone would make me nervous.

If you've not felt like granite was stainable, I highly suspect it was already sealed.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
