Shooting Two Rabbits With One Bullet
« on: June 28, 2014, 04:19:18 PM »

I have had some galley issues. 

No decent place to put drain rack - precarious perch on fold out table with poor drainage.
Fold out counter extension too wide to pass by.
No place for trash.

Solved.

Very nice.  Will that dish rack fit in one of the sinks?  If so, where did you get it.  I can't find one to fit in the sink.

No.   I had a dish rack that fit in the sink and it drove me crazy as it lacked capacity and made it difficult to operate the tap.   This dish rack now has blocks underneath to give it the height and slope for perfect drainage (even while motor sailing on either tack).   The fiddles prevent the dish rack from moving around. 

I have tested this for a week of cruising and absolutely love the new trash location.   All made from recycled bits - some leftover cherry veneer shelves from my kitchen renovation, the old fold out counter ripped in half, fiddles trimmed, and even paint left over from my engine bed.   

The insert pail and dish rack were new at a total cost of about $30.

Hey Waterdog... I couldn't resist. Here is a couple of pics of my Waterdog, Mr. Milo. Well actually, OK he's not a real P-Waterdog... he is a miniature Labradoodle...loves the boat, Climbs up and down the companionway ladder like a champ. He's a great Frisbee dog too!
