As we come out of our slumber we find ourselves back in the midst of the galley and what is to become of it. Finding yourself with challenges of teak work and details that mean more than just its look but of how it will withstand. On a boat things are not as they are in your home. You ask yourself will this leak will it break under the strain of a bad storm. So many things to think of, storage, water. Two types fresh and salt. And lets not forget WEIGHT, oh how important this is. You never think of how much something weighs when applying it to your home really. You only look at it for its beauty and its usefulness. On a boat it is only a challenge, finding materials that are strong, long lasting, light . But you find yourself needing to find the beauty and its usefulness. And I hope that is what we are doing with this refit. The teak work is slow, so many details. I have some updated photos of the sink area. This has been a challenge, only due to the fact that in a Formosa the galley was in the starboard section. So we completely moved it to the port side. In this area you would have found bench seating and a table. If you recall we made drastic changes in the v-berth also. While finding ourselves loving the changes we have also found it to be very laborious.We still have sanding and staining to do with more teak vainer to go up. As the weather warms and the days become longer we will punch through. Until next time my friends.
