|WhoDat||I've been trying to get out to the back to take a picture of the Spirit's interior without the galley. Lots of rain and the sun still sets a bit early. I'll keep trying. There is quasi step ladder that connects to the bottom of the companion way and ends on the cabin sole. It reminds me of a boarding ladder. Aluminum tubes with plastic steps. There are 4 pieces of teak screwed to the floor under the ladder. They are to help to keep the ice chest from sliding around. The cabin does look a lot bigger without the galley. Thanks for the reply. Fair winds, John|

Wow 2 S23s!! You DO have your hands full.
I'll let you know If I decide to remove the galley.
Hows does the 81 look/function w/o the galley? Is there a step into the cabin?

|WhoDat||GoodOldBoater, I have 2 North American Spirits. A 1977 model without the poptop. It's in really good condition. I also have a 1981 model with a poptop that needs a lot of attention. The 77 model has the galley under the companionway. The 81 does not have a galley. If you're interested in finding a new home for your galley, please let me know. Thanks, John.|

|windyway||My 79 S23 has the galley that slides out from under the starboard cockpit seat. I'm putting an alcohol Origo stove in it. When I build another one I'll want to have a sink in it for the overnights I'm going to spend on it. That's next years project.|

|GoodOldBoater||Actually the Austin Texas 77-78 version of the s23 had a slide out galley option-which was located under the companionway under the front of the cockpit - and doubled as a step into the cabin. It's a heavy beast.|

|windyway||You have to specify whether the galley is aft of the starbrd settee or under the cabin entrance way, cause I'm confused I thought the pull out galley was starbrd & the fixed galley was at the entrance & used as a step. Remember, any substantial weight needs to be as close to the bottom of the boat as possible (battery(s) ) as this takes advantage of having a lower C of G.|

Pull Out Galley
So I have the pull out galley - and I Never use it.
I'm considering removing it for better storage (cabin battery)
and less weight (it's Heavy!).
I'd replace it with a cooler that I could secure and use a cabin step.
I have a grill for cooking and have never used the tiny sink,
(except to hold stuff).
