Welcome to the club! We have L400S2 #320.
For your galley
We really enjoy cooking
on our boat. With a little time and effort we are able to create and serve literally anything we want. We store food
in all the normal places—under the settees, in baskets above the oven, under the washing
machine (we have the owner’s version, so it’s starboard side, just in front of the head), and under the bench seat on the owner’s side. All the wine goes under the floorboards (along with emergency
5 liter bottles of water), and we stack cases of beer
in the owner’s stateroom—that way I can keep my eye on it!!
Our microwave is on the port side, above the freezer
. We rarely use it. We have some square baskets for storage
on top of the microwave and oven.
Our TV is on a hinged mount on the side of the oven.
I think I'm going to swap square plates for my round ones. I don't really like square plates, but if I do it right they'll stow better, and maybe compliment the style of the interior
We have only used our washing machine once. The on/off button keeps coming dislodged, we’ve fixed it twice. My brother has a cute little plastic hand washing machine thing that looks more efficient. I’d love to have that space for storage…
I have not played with the lighting
in the salon, but a dimmer is a good idea. I put a cheap
(but not too obnoxious) battery
powered LED on the bottom of the cabinet over the stove which works well at saving our night vision. Its white, but a red one would probably be better
Mood lighting for the steps sounds good, but I’m saving my money
for other boat jewelry. We did install underwater lights on the transoms, pretty cool in clear shallow water
