Re: Galley Position

The Tomcat 9.7 is probably one of the best Galley down views that I have seen

It has something to do with the cats motion and responsiveness in different sea states. In my case I was looking at placing 200kg in each hull. My build comes with a preference of galley up or down. I chose galley up and could not see any difference between having galley down and tanks up or tanks down and galley up so chose the latter.

Interesting that a designer would prefer weight on the bridgedeck rather than under cabin sole in center of hulls. Other designers would disagree Perhaps racing cats are different.

Re: Galley Position

Yeah I would agree with weight down , yet water storage on the one I am building is behind the mast under lounge ? (go figure) on my 45 foot boat water is under floor would be interesting to understand the relationship of these dynamics without designers personal opinion ( actual stress on boat )

Re: Galley Position

I find it surprising that any naval architect would prefer putting the heaviest part of the accomodation on the bridgedeck as it will raise the Cg and add stress to the joinder between the hulls and the bridgedeck. Perhaps his concern related to balancing the weight as between the two hulls - i.e., wanting to have relatively equal weight to the accomodation and stores in each hull? From what I can see, the weight of the galley down in the starboard hull of my boat is balanced by the fact that both heads and the work bench/spares storage are in the port hull.

Re: Galley Position

Apparently Crowther saw it the same way as Schionning. My Catana has, all at bridge level, even w/mast, stbd to port: stbd fuel; next, anchor; next, another locker; port, port fuel. Directly aft, centered just behind mast, is water, accessed from settee back. On stbd aft cabin bulkhead is the fridge, on port is stove.

All weight seems to be centered/ distributed at bridge except of course the engines and heads are aft.
