A Perfect Cutting Board For Your Boat Galley

A perfect cutting board set for your boat galley,containing three different sized boards, to find just the right fit for your boat galley sink!

I know you are thinking... that a mounted cutting board on your gimbaled stove is the best and perfect option for a cutting surface and to add more functional space for to your boat galley and I agree! However, what if you don't have a mounted cutting board for your stove? And even if you do, why not add some additional usable space in your galley?

The gimbaled stove on my last boat had a butcher block top that added extra counter space and a built in cutting board. Our new boat didn't come with this feature and I've yet to figure out how to find the right sized cutting board top for it or to get my husband to make me one... Maybe now that our boat is out of the water? One can always hope, right?

I had purchased this cutting board to use onboard and to add some color because I do love transforming sailboat/boat interiors! I figured out that it fits perfectly on my double sink and as a bonus it doesn't slip, providing the perfect spot to cut up food in the galley! Any extra scraps or peels can be scraped into the sink and cleaned up afterwards. It also is great to convert the sink area into additional counter space to place things when you are just running out of room! This image is of the medium cutting board size. I also like the smaller size to use as a colorful cheese board!

Available online in several locations. Look for Bamboo Non Slip Cutting Board Set by Lipper International.

Sure like my Dexas Chop and Scoop. Light weight, versatile. I'll leave the heavy, one-use-only boards on the hard

I dunno man, as a recovering wooden boat owner, and now a plastic boat owner, surely plastic is better for all things boat related. Of course there is another thread here touting the benefits of another material....

Steel cutting boards! That's the best kind! Of course if you want one made from scrap salvaged from a dumpster or if you want one an artistic hammered or makume board, then we could debate that question endlessly!

Re: A Perfect Cutting Board For Your Boat Galley

I find that the problem with wood cutting boards that are made to fit on stovetops is that they tend to swell and shrink as the humidity goes up and down on the boat. Consequently, they never really fit very well for very long. Keeping them well oiled helps, but doesn't completely cure, the problem. On the other hand, plastic boards can be more easily damaged by a still hot stovetop it they get put into place too soon after the burners are turned off.

Not true. There has been a lot of good peer-reviewed research on this subject. Properly cared for wood cutting boards are better than plastic.

I was just playin'. The simple post cried out for a simple reply .

Yeah, I read some of the research when we were re-doing our kitchen a few years ago. Counter intuitive, certainly, but true. I still dislike wooden boards for my own reasons.
