came back to our boat, looked at our galley (yeah, it's formica instead of corian but you can't get thrown out of the U-shaped layout in rough seas) and got a jolt of "there's no place like home."
It wouldn't be too difficult or indeed too expensive to put Corian countertops in a galley. The stuff works nicely with regular woodworking tools. You could give Cinderella a Christmas present!
It's nice to hear that other folk like the HR40. I sailed mine (original layout) from Sweden to Annapolis in 2006 and delivered the boat show 40 ("classic" layout) from Daytona Beach to Annapolis in 4 days 19 hours, including a quick stop in Beaufort for water (hose popped off the in-built water filter and pumped all the water into bilge - note to self: turn off pressure water when not in use). I really like the boat - good sail plan, fast hull, very comfortable below and a nice galley in both layouts. Of course I'm far from objective on the matter.
sail fast and eat well, dave
