PSC 34 Trash Can Cover

I replaced the corroded leaking galley sink in our 1988 Crealock 34 with a new Scandvik sink that was just slightly larger than the original. The new sink bumped into the trash can lid, and rather than shaving the lid down I built a new hinged lid (and a matching chopping block/sink cover) to take its place.

If anyone has a use for the old trash can cover, send me an email to claim it, then a letter with $15 to pay the flat rate USPS shipping to a US location and it is yours.

I passed on the trash can cover. Like mine, it has a few open joints. If anyone needs a cover, I wouldn't let the open joints discourage you too much, they swell shut with a little moisture and really haven't been enough of a problem to encourage me to build a new one. I sand mine down a little each spring and put a fresh coat of oil on it and it looks fine.

The cover has three joints that are open. All three closed when I put a clamp across the cover. While I have not tried it, I suspect that one could force glue into the open joints then close them with a couple of clamps while waiting for the glue to dry. The joints open 1/32" or less. There is one between the first and second full boards from one edge, there is a second between the fourth and third boards from the other edge, and the third is between the last full board and the edging piece.

I had not noticed the open joints until John asked.

I would love to see a picture of your new setup. The sink project is on my list as well.

We will be down to the boat later this month to leave for the Bahamas. I'll take some pictures then.

When we first filled the sinks on Irish Eyes, we found what the surveyor didn’t; the starboard side sink had been perforated by the salt water from the sea water tap that fills that sink. The temporary fix was quick but crude. I put on rubber gloves and rubbed Bondo over the bottom of the sink until Bondo worms came out the many almost microscopic holes in the stainless steel. When it hardened I brushed the worms away, and the sink was again usable.

I was unable to locate a Polar sink the size of the original, but I did find a slightly wider (port-starboard) and narrower (fore-aft) Sandvick sink at a great price at Sailors Exchange in St Augustine. I had to make the hole wider (a saw) to allow the sink to fit with the starboard bowl touching the exterior of the shelf filled cabinet and bringing the port sink flange to the edge of the trash can finger hole depression. The new sink did not have a large flange on the far side of the sink, so the fresh water foot pump tap (port side), the salt water foot pump tap (starboard side), and the hot and cold pressurized water tap (middle) all had to go in a new bit of plywood, fiberglass, resin, and gelcoat which I added to make a space for them. I also added a pump dispenser for Joy detergent.

The new sink was too close to the trash can hole for the existing trashcan cover to fit. Rather than trimming it down, I replaced it with a hinged lid made from oak and teak and also made a matching cutting board with its bottom trimmed to closely fit the port sink and loosely fit the starboard sink. Later, at Target I lucked into a plastic basket that fits the port sink and holds fruit and such like the more normal galley vegetable hammock. A water drop shaped teak turnbutton holds the trash can lid open in a seaway. The cutting board has four small rubber feet on its bottom which allow it to span the raised covers in the middle of our fixed salon table to serve as a trivet for a hot casserole dish or as a bread cutting board during meals.

Thanks Bill for the info on your sink replacement experience. This is one project we'll likely be doing aboard Jo Beth this spring.

We've been looking at the same Sandvick stainless sinks but are also thinking of going to a Corian type counter top with molded in sink. Anyone had experience with those on a PSC?

Thanks!
