Very nice work indeed... a safety bar in front of the range would be a great idea. The whole job is an amazing improvement over the 'before'... Well done.

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.
I forgot to mention in my original post, we still have to add bungs, route the corner edges, and add vents to the cut outs for the freezer. Also the bulkhead separating the stove and the left cubbie needs trim. Considering adding a safety bar as well.

There are critques who really don't have an imagination or skill to do similar work.
Nice Job...

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

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.

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

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!

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