Re: Trying to streamline storage and dishwashing

The underside of the nave table top on Coorie Doon has a fold out leg that holds it open just enough so it is a level surface. Like Oceangirl said handy for food prep or other projects.

Re: Trying to streamline storage and dishwashing

Irish Eyes also has the maybe 1"x1"x8 teak bit inside the the desk that pivots on a screw near one end and holds the nav desk top partially open and level. We have used it both as another flat spot to place things on and as a place for the extra dinner guest to sit amd eat when the table was already completly surrounded by people.

We also have another piece of teak (maybe 3/4"x3/4"x8") screwed to the port side of the nav desk. Apparently, the original cover for the stove would rest on it and on the top of the teak railing around the sink making an extra countertop but also blocking passage thru the boat.

(Irish Eyes was missing the stove cover when we bought her. I made one, but I did not include the 3/4" deep little circular cut out needed to fit around the stainless steel post between the sink counter and the salon overhead, so my new stove cover will not fit in that spot.)

Re: Trying to streamline storage and dishwashing

Here are some photos of the extra shelf used for drying dishes:



and with it in use drying dishes:



My apologies for the poor image quality. The shelf has a lip that sits wedged behind the fiddle, and there are two angle braces below. You have to be aware of it if you are using that bunk, but all in all it is very useful space.

As you can see, my chart table is also a flat working surface, with the swing-up legs. That is the most used space on the boat by me. It is the perfect work height for galley work, and I use it as a light duty work bench, and of course nav station underway, w SSB and HAM behind. A third of it is usually covered in fruit during summer coastal cruising. We of course keep it stowed while underway, but in calm conditions or at anchor we'll leave it out, where it is vulnerable to wakes or whatever. I lost a peach last summer.....and found it weeks later

Where do ya'll keep your fruit? I try to only take meat, milk, eggs, and veggies from our farm while coastal cruising, and we eat a lot of fruit from the market and sea life when we score. Turns out I eat much better on the water overall... now where did those cookies go?

The ergonomics of our nav stations and galleys work very well for me, and I do cook far more on the boat while out cruising. What an incredible boat, really. Enjoying hearing how your boats are configured, thanks for the contributions.

Does anyone have a clever way to turn nav table into workbench? Like with a protective cover of some kind, like ply, and a vice?

Re: Trying to streamline storage and dishwashing

Hello Cheoah,
Not sure if your posting of photos came thru or not. I'd sure like to see them as well. Sounds like you are describing an extension of the counter fwd of the sink? Maybe a foldable one for drying of dishes? Whether or not thats what you've done i like the idea of a fold down shelf fwd of the sink. I think I've seen something like that on the newer PSC's.

Speaking of your lost Peach. I left a pork loin (uncooked) in the icebox (turned off) closed up for probably about 5 or 6 weeks. Hate to tell you what that was like when I opened it up. All the things that flew out, the smell. I scrubbed with bleach and hot water for 2 hours. Had to throw my clothes away. Won't be making that mistake again anytime soon!!!!

Took a month for the girlfriend to feel okay about going down to the boat again.

Re: Trying to streamline storage and dishwashing

Just so everyone is fully aware ... there was a stuff up re Mondofromredondo's account and he was forced to post as Caboman until we sorted out the problem. All is now good so Mondo is back and Cabo must be banished. Poor Cabo. Let's raise a glass to his passing.

Your photos display fine.

I've seen a folding shelf attached to the forward side of the galley sinks of PSC 34s that have the fold down table, but not one like yours.

What are the ribs on the bottom of the stove cover for? That also is something I have not seen before.
