Looks great. Nice job. That refrigeration will also come in handy for something essential after a good day's sailing: a cold beer.

Re: Teach a girl to use the big boy tools and look what she can do

Thank you all - It was a lot of hard work, but I'm really happy with how it turned out. In just a few days we'll be done with all this boat yard crap and start sailing again!

Nice job. It's always feels good when you can stand back & admire your accomplishments. It's right up there with a picture perfect wood pile

Re: Teach a girl to use the big boy tools and look what she can do

I'm guessing a lot of thought went into the layout.

I agree with BL, great use of space and really nice work. Definitely something to be proud of.

Re: Teach a girl to use the big boy tools and look what she can do

the drawers in the steps is brilliant. I assume you can remove them to lift/remove the steps for engine access?

Yep! The whole set of stairs lifts up to gain access.

Re: Teach a girl to use the big boy tools and look what she can do

Very, very well done. That's coming from a professional cabinet maker. Looks like you stole about 22" from the adjacent settee? If so, might be a good tradeoff. We are stealing a few inches from the port bench to move our head aft; can't decide whether to bump a footwell into the forward bulkhead or no.

Fitting a U-shaped galley into a boat under 40' is an excellent feat. My one recommendation would be to soften those corners!

corners

You might take a palm sander or rasp to the 90s on the countertop nosing. As is, they will be easily damaged -- and will cause ugly bruises, or worse.
