Re: Microwaves vs. Crealocks'...
Bill & Al,
We found that same boat on YW a few months back when we decided this would be the year to refit. The Q-Berth conversion is one thing we've wanted to do since day one, and converting the nav station to something akin in the images is also in the plans - but for down the road. I really like the 'stand-up' concept here, and I could be happy with the microwave install accordingly. The conversion of the Q-Berth is the beginning; we're also consolidating our electrics to the hinged panel as seen in the pics, (we currently have two separate DC panels and one AC panel) and minimal electronics. Ah, a look towards the future...
We probably will go with a SAT phone & FAX over SSB when the time comes, but no hard decision on that as of yet.
