Galley Cabinet Spice Rack Upgrade

Mahe's,

Removed the 3 almond plastic shelves from the galley cabinet and moved them to other cabinets.

Added a larger and deeper 3 shelf Spice Rack to the galley cabinet.
I was told by the First Mate that the almond plastic shelves would not hold the larger size spices and that the smaller size spices cost much more than the larger size.

Who am I to judge, as long as good food keeps coming out of that Galley, this was the least I could do .

Switch Panel Labels

Mahe's,

I labeled the 12 volt switch panel, because the first mate and I do not understand the symbols.

See attached word document, so fellow Mahe’s can print the label out and tape or laminate it up on their switch panel also.

Shower Curtains and Towel Racks in both heads

Mahe's,

1) We installed Shower Curtains with a wall to wall shower rod.

The rods are just attached with some .062” SS wire from the Stanton bolt on one side and a loop of SS wire up over the top ridge on the other side. It was an easy job that took about 10 minutes

2) Installed two Towel Racks in each head.

Makes for less cleaning now that all the shower water stays just in the back shower area.

Simple Locker Curtains to hide all your "STUFF"

Mahe's,

We installed some simple locker Curtains to hide all our stuff.
The Curtains are actually made from a stretchy fabric which works better than a tight weave non-stretchy one
(tried both and stretchy works better).

The rods are just small inexpensive adjustable ones which we used at both the top and bottom.

Just slide the curtain to one side get some stuff and then slide the curtain back

Thanks for posting the project photos. Have you put any hardware in place to hold the cabin/head doors from swinging and banging?

Chuck,
We put clear rubber bumpers on all the lower door edges that would hit the walls.
For the most part we always close all doors and lock all cabinets when under way.
When ever we forget to close a door then the rubber bumpers come into play and stop any damage.

I've installed a hook and eye at the same height as the wood trim on the hull and screwed the hook (I think it is a 3 inch hook) into the wood trim and the eye into the door. Simple and inexpensive.
Mark, we did the exact same thing with the curtains over the lockers, we also made our own curtains for all the windows in the Saloon and used velcro to secure them (had to sew the velcro on the curtains and glue to the cabin wall), just peel to open and stick to close. Also had a roll up screen with zippered door fitted over the sliders and installed roll down sun curtains around our bimini. Works great in cutting down on the heat of the day.

I'll try to remember to take pictures next time I'm on the boat.

Mahe Wine Cellar

Mahe's

Since our hulls stay so dry on these cats we figured we may as well put them to good use. Here is our Wine Cellar in the Starboard hold at the bottom of the steps. Just wrap the bottles in bubble wrap or a towel and stow them away.

We have hull#25. We are storing our wines in the bilge also.It is about the right temperature for reds.Always dry down there,never had a drop of water. Just replaced the anodes for the first time though they were in pretty good shape.

Sealed the edges of the saloon floor with sealant

Mahe’s

Sealed the edges of the saloon floor using one of those Pro Caulk tools and brown sealant.
My First Mate was cleaning that groove out all the time. Crumbs and hair just seem to gravitate to there.
Also notice if any water was spilled it would just go under the floor, which is probable not a good thing.
Home Depot Dap brand "Brown" matches pretty nicely and cleans up well. That Pro Caulk tool made it easy.
