Replacement Galley Sink
« on: July 13, 2011, 09:29:31 AM »

After discovering the starboard vent stanchion had leaked and rotted the back corner of the galley counter, it was time to replace. I figured I'd replace the 20 year old pitted sink while I was at it. Not wanting to plunk down $900.00, I started an internet search. I had no idea finding a 17"x25"x9" deep stainless sink would be so hard. Not until i removed the old sink and found a faded label, did I discover it's a Polar-Ware sink. A quick search found it's East Coast distributor, JES Restaraunt Equipment in S. Carolina. Sure enough, they had the sink for $111.00!! It is 18 gauge stainless, with a brushed metal finish. I had to drill a 1" hole for the faucet, but other-wise it fit exactly. Erin, their salesperson, was extremely helpful. She can be reached at: erin@jesrestarauntequipment.com. P.S. check those stanchions!

Great post, thanks.

Has anyone considered just why sinks rust out?  There's a fellow on the C36 site who had this issue recently.  Battery fumes?  Although the C36 batteries are not below the sink unless the owner moved batteries from the standard starboard side to under the saloon seats.

What part of the sink rusted out?  From the top I see no signs of deterioration on mine.  The plastic drain fittings are starting to loose their "chrome" and are on the replacement list.  Should I be getting the mirrors out and checking the inside the cabinet?

My sink wasn't rusted, just pitted. Little pock marks, scratches and gouges that I couldn't buff or polish out. The bottom was fine. The reason to replace was purely for cosmetic reasons

When I replaced mine, I could actually see daylight in the back left corner looking up from underneath. I don't recall it costing $900. but I'm sure it was more than $111. The old one was brushed stainless, the new one was polished stainless.

David,

Do you have the model # you ordered.  Looked on their website but could not find the item you discussed.

Thanks
