[Public-list] Modified galley and v-berth.

Relative to the Starboard side, I would guess, after install of the new
stove you have about 4+ feet (fore/aft) left of the original bunk. This is
enough for a good bench seat and backrest (18 to 24") and a decent counter
depth. Have you considered having the nav station face forward? That way
you would not have to squeeze into the recess at the forward bulkhead to
sit. You also would have the bulkhead on which to mount electronic gear
that would be visible from the seat and cockpit (I have been thinking of
putting a stereo with a wireless remote control there). This arrangement
would also give you access to the area behind the new stove (where your legs
go now). You could hinge down a full width seat back to access there or
make the back rest narrower to allow direct access.
Relative to the work bench and additional galley counter, it would be
relatively easy design the nav seat so it could be removed and installed
flush with nav counter (perhaps upside down so the seat cushion faces down).
This would result in a continuous counter forward of the stove about 4'
long. You could store tools under the seat that would be easily accessible
when the seat is raised to form the counter.
I did a mock up of a booth arrangement that can be seen at this link
http://home.att.net/~jinnii/roger/mahina/booth.pdf. The height of the table
was in line with the bottom of the outboard storage shelf and I used it as a
workbench for several months (because of the epoxy spills, I think it
weighed twice original when I removed it).
To port, "PERFECT intentions" had an ice box with the top in line with the
bridge deck (it's like a small dersser inside). I have removed the
refrigerator added there and there is gobs of space, particularly if you
incorporate the selves outboard of the fridge box. The last slide in above
link shows the box with fridge still in. I will try to get a photo of the
empty box but it is easily 24" deep (fore/aft) and extend about 12" below
the bottom of the fridge door . It would be feasible to do a mini pantry
closet with "L" shaped shelves aft and outboard and narrow shelves on the
door. The bottom could hold big, heavy stuff like pots and pans.
Hope this makes sense and perhaps even helps.
