Show us your galley

I'm getting ready to start my upper cabinetry work in my galley.


I'm looking for ideas for shelving, compartments, dish stowage, door/no door mechanisms and options.

If you could post pictures of these areas....if you have doors on these cabinets can you take a picture of them open so I can see how the contents are stowed.

The picture shows the areas I’ll be working on, you can see two over counter areas to the left (forward) of the range and one much sallower area to the right behind the freezer.

I sure appreciate the input.

If you are willing to partially block off one of those portlights with a dish rack suspended between those "knees", you'll have a place to dry your dishes.

You could make it so that the rack is made of dowelling, and that it slides in and out of slots. You could then make the dishrack double as a drying rack.

I don’t think I'd want dishes hanging at head height…but your idea to have a dish rack sliding has me thinking…if we look at the space at the port forward end of the counter …there is a space for a back/upper cabinet….I could see the dish rack sliding in and out of part of that space towards the sink.
Interesting…thanks

So when are you going to start the "show us your galley" thread?

I would go with doors for the cabinets that will hold stuff that won't look nice, since the boat is so beautiful. The cabinets are so close to the counter, you don't have room for the usual side swinging cabinet doors. You would have to clear off the counter every time you want to open the cabinet. That leaves sliding doors or ones that swing up. I envision something that looks just like the doors I can see in the background of the last pic.

I like the previously mentioned idea of putting the dishes in the section by the sink, in a pull-out unit or compartments that fit the dishes well. Then the dishes would be accessible both from the galley and from the other side.

You could have room for sliding doors.

Thanks WinterRiver
I thought this was the "show us your galley thread"...I'm gonna start it now!
The door problem is one concern. I may have the option of having the door slide straight down as well!
If like that I'll want them to be light weight...the doors you see in the back-ground are heavy.
If you notice, I haven’t installed the panels in the under cabinet doors yet.... I still don’t know what I want there...
Thanks

My only suggestion is NOT to use what I call the "Finger Breaker" method of installing latches that I have something like 26 of on my boat. I was against them before I owned them and now that I'm stuck with them my opinion of sticking your finger in a hole and then unlatching something with your finger is the dumbest thing I can think of on a boat. Picture getting "waked" or otherwise violently tossed with your finger in a wooden hole wrapped around a piece of metal Maybe..... OK for sliding doors like my galley but not a latch.
