I finally started building my galley...

Postby gregcrawford » Fri Sep 09, 2011 7:16 am

I started building my galley the other day. I am about 6 hours into it using some mahogany type wood I have had for several years.

I made four sets of frames utilizing a Kreg jig and screws, then routed recesses for the panels in all openings but one. This opening will receive two drawers. The top is made from a different species of mahogany, cut into strips and laminated together. I cut a section out of the top so that it can be hinged. This section will hold the brass Fynspray galley pump that I scored at Sailors Exchange for $45.00!! This thing retails for about $300.00, although you can get them for less.

By swinging the pump down into the galley, there will be clearance to slide the galley under the cockpit seat as per the original. I didn't make my galley as large as the factory galley since I am using a flexible water tank which will rest under the cockpit. I will connect the hose via a plug in connection when the galley is in use.

For a stove, I have ordered the Forespar Sea Swing gimbaled cook stove, but it hasn't arrived yet.

There are more pictures here:http://sports.webshots.com/album/580706606FambIY

I will cut out the top and install a sink on the left hand side. the Sea Swing stove will mount on a board on the right hand end of the galley, leaving the right side of the top open for food preparation.

There will also be rails on all four sides of the top to prevent things from sliding off. This is a lot of work just to make sure I can get fresh coffee out of sight of land! I guess beer would be cheaper and easier, but I just never got into it!

I am trying to get it done before I leave for the Outer Banks in October. Any comments or suggestions are welcome as always. You always have in mind the way things should be, and then when you actually put them to use you realize you should have done things a little differently. I guess you call that experience.

Gregg,
Great Job!!!

I was hoping to build one last winter and only purchased the stove. This winter it looks like I will be working the swing keel and pin assembly. Thanks for the pictures. Please let us know what you like and don't like about it. Maybe we can all leartn from your experience.

Best of luck with it. The woodwork looks great!!!

Thank you for all the compliments. I will test it out on Pamlico Sound in about a month if nothing goes awry. I will let you know what worked and what didn't.

I finally uploaded some pictures to Webshots. Its been very hectic trying to catch back up at work since I returned from vacation.

Here is a shot of the galley in place. The pump will fold down into the galley so that it can be slid back under the radios and into the cockpit locker. I am going to have to cut off the drawers some because the water line interferes with the pump folding down fully. A miscalculation on my part. I installed a Forespar stove which is similar to the old Seaswing unit. It hangs on the companionway door next to the galley. I originally was going to use a small propane camp stove on top of the galley, but I prefer having the open work space to prepare food. I may go ahead and install fiddles on the top as well. The drain needs a little modification as it will flood if you don't let the water out slowly. The factory drain cup won't flow too quickly out the through hull. You can click on the picture and it will take you to my Webshots page which has a lot more pictures.

A lot of nice woodwork on that C22 8)
The shorter design of the galley will give you some extra storage in the cockpit locker too 8) 8)

I am really liking this galley.

How about I send you my OEM Galley and you send me this Galley? :D

No!? :shock:

Dang. :cry:

Thanks you for sharing this, I've got to do something like this for my boat.

Thanks
Alan

I'm new to this site and have just picked up my very own C22. As stated above you have beautiful woodwork in your boat. Do you have more photos of it and something posted about what you did?

I know this thread is a little old....but they're all new to me. :lol:

There are many more pictures on my blog bluesimage.blogspot.com and also on Webshots at http://community.webshots.com/user/gregscrawford .

I have finished the rear storage area on the port side to match the starboard since these photos have been taken. I hope to build a new table and do some more cabinetry this winter. I bring the boat to the house for the winter so that it can be worked on.

I'll be happy to answer any questions that I can.

I appreciate the response. Any pictures of the newly finised side? Any photos from when you were building them?

It's a long way off for my Chrysler but I'm sure I'll be doing something similar down the road. Much bigger fish to fry at this point though.
