My PSC37 doesn't have this panel in the galley either. Nothing but a smooth fiberglass corner. Maybe it was a feature at some point??
BTW, in checking out your photo it looks like your interior wood is significantly less worn than mine, especially around the companion way stair handholds. Any suggestions on how you kept it so nice?

The interior of Skalliwag was custom built by Cape George Yachts in Washington. Mr. Crealock had nothing to do with it.
I am going to try the plexiglass cover route, right now thinking of cutting access openings for the buttons I need to reach.

NiftyNickers doesnt have that panel either.I also dont like the duplex AC outlet right under the sink,I assume thats for the inverter output.I wonder if that mess is factory installed or previous owner.

My "Old" Toodle--oo! didn't have that panel at all. I'd get rid and relocate everything - give you a nice project to work on - it'll end up in re-wiring the whole boat!!!
(What's wrong with keeping a name?) :-) especially when it's a good'un!

Denise gets the prize. raindog, you get the aesthetic prize--but putting a round cover over the panel will make it impossible to read what's under it, especially as it scratches.
Boy, would I LOVE to hear Crealock's excuse for why that stuff is located there. No doubt there's a case of cheap tequila and a rush deadline involved.

You could buy a clear, cast, acrylic tube the same outside diameter as the width of the flat panel. Cut it in half, so you are left with a semi-circle of clear acrylic. Hinge it at one side. Same effect, but since it is rounded it will not create a sharp corner and will not hit the switches.

|GraemeInCanada||oh.. I didn't see Denise's suggestion before I posted. Same idea|

|GraemeInCanada||OK. What about a hinged acrylic panel? You can head into any shop and they'll shape one out for you no problem. Just one piece of 3/16 maybe, have them heat the parts that need bending to attach it to the cabinet and drill a couple of holes for each hinge to attach it to. A small magnet to keep it closed.. It'll essentially be a clear lid. Measure the area, the height it needs to clear and you should be good to go. Simple I think?|
