Catalina 22 - build a galley??

Hello,
I'm the new owner of a Catalina 22 #880 as of last week. I'm working on cleaning the boat up and learning the ropes setting it up in my backyard.

My boat doesn't have the slide-out galley, but I would like to build something that I could use as a simple sliding galley.

I was wondering if anyone on this forum has built something like this? Doesn't seem that it would be too hard to do something out of wood a simple stove, and a sink from an RV shop or something. I'm just looking for some ideas so I can build one myself.

Anyone have some tips or photos they can share?

Thanks!
Tom

You need to join the Catalina 22 National Sailing Association. The web site is www.catalina22.org. With your membership you will receive a 309 page Catalina 22 owner technical manual, on CD rom. In this CD, you will find pages and pages of info including building a galley. Also check out the Forums on the Catalina Direct Page, at www.catalinadirect.com.

Good Sailing

Catalina 22 - Build a Galley

Tomg847:
I agree with the writer who recommended joining the National C22 Association. A wealth of ideas there, as well as help from fellow C22 owners. One thing to keep in mind about building a galley or any other modification to your C22...the concept of multiple uses for items on the boat. For example, using a bucket as a sink. It can also be used for washing down the deck, washing clothes, holding cordage, etc. Use a campstove that can be removed from the slide out and used in the cockpit. (Check out the smaller stoves at stores such as WalMart.) For hot water, use a camp shower system that collects heat from the sun. Pick the brains of other small-boat owners who have made modifications on their boats. You'll be glad you did.

Good luck!

You're in good company. I think there were 15,000 or so C-22's made.
