Interesting Galley Idea: Build It In!

Now, this looks like the sort of thing I'd like to see in galley design!

Re: Interesting Galley Idea: Build It In!

It seems like a cool idea at first, but I'm picturing scraps making it to the floor. If you put a ridge around it, using a knife would be tough. I've also never seen a built in galley trash receptacle that would hold more than an hours worth of garbage. We still tie a bag to the companionway and use the built-in as storage.

But, if you had the room to make it work, it would be cool.

Only on a big boat. On a 34/36ft that block that is there occupied by the garbage and by a removable bench is normally used on a 34/36ft for a drawer for the tableware and an inferior cabinet for the garbage. If that solution is used there will be no space for any drawer

A starboard cutting board that bridges your galley sink will do the same. I have a store bought one that has a built in collapsible basket for the chopped food (or for the waste if you prefer). It sits perfectly over the double sink.

That cutting board would need to be removeable to be rinse/washed.

Now you started it! Cheif2sail will be here to tell us how bad they are!

Looks to me to be a waste of some drawer space, and easy to for get to open the trash can, making a mess, but some happy dogs! You could cut a hole in a cutting board that fits over the sink and put a bowl under it to catch the cuttings.

I agree with Minnewaska all the built in's I have ever seen have been so small they don't make piratical sense. If they were big enough they would take up too much valuable storage space.

Re: Interesting Galley Idea: Build It In!

Someone has posted similar mod. Only the thickness of the board slides in and out. Is useful for cutting and additional counter space. I would use something less permiable than wood.

Re: Interesting Galley Idea: Build It In!

I like the idea but I would expect that all that steel drawer hardware to rust pretty quick...
