Re: San Juan 7.7
jeffzee: took a while to get back to you--we've tweaked our 7.7 about as much as possible, and happy to share ideas with you--opposite the head, that storage bin ends up being wasted space, so I glassed in two 1x1x15" wood strips inside the upper bin. Then I attached drawer slides and the wire drawer, and we use that for all the silverware and cooking utensils. The lower bin we use for our fan, heater, jacklines, and a PFD or two. *On another topic, if you're still using that dumb detachable ladder in the cabin entry, it takes up too much space and gets in the way when you have to remove it to get under the cockpit.. I cut up the ladder for parts, and made steps that I attached directly to the under-cockpit door. Put two barrel bolts to secure the door, and you're good to go. *We also cut out some counter space and added the Origo alcohol stove, which has really worked out well. I'll add pics, let me know what you think...

(PS: I made the cabinet door opposite the head--tried to match the cabinet door on the galley. And note that the under-cockpit door has twist locks in this pic--they were too loose, and I replaced them with barrel bolts..)
