Re: Modernizing a Prout Elite 37ft

the final configuration of the galley before glassing in the shelves.

the top surface will have a cut out for the 2 burner cooker and grill which will sit on the lower surface,making the burners level with the upper surface leaving a 55cm work surface on the left,and a 30cm surface on the right.

microwave cooker built in on the left below the work surface.

not sure about the hot tub,but the temporary cockpit cover is making an effective rain catcher, I found 150 liters of water trapped in it filling the cockpit area the other morning

LOL

Same thing happens to The Project! Every time we get a downpour I have to visit it and 'bail' the cockpit out and re-tension the guys on the tarp covering it.

At least it's not collecting in the bilge, although I did drill some drain holes just in case.

Rainwater and ply. Not a good combination.

Galley's looking good, Atoll! Now all you need is a Princess Leia in 'galley-slave' mode....

Yes. I think Alex has a habit of measuring things before starting drinking. Not as much fun but looks better when sober..........

Hats off to the build.

And Im sure boaties refurbishments will look as good.
