spot ikea in jim’s new galley

his 1947 32′ skansie-built edwin monk design cruiser needed a new galley and jim turned to ikea to get it fitted.

the original galley

jim says, “we decided we needed to remove the galley from the old boat and re-arrange to to make it better fit our needs, upgrade to propane, replace the rusted sink and get better use of the space in the galley area. only thing to do is rip the whole thing out and start again.”

the sink is a domsjo and jim used 3 rationell drawers to complete the set-up. the drawers have excellent runners and dampening action that prevent them from opening, even with the rolling of the boat.

done! the drawers now wear mahogany fronts to match the new slimmer galley.
