Nope. Previous name was Goliard, new name will be Singularity when the weather cooperates long enough to change it.

Re: Thing attached to overhead

Would anyone really want to hang a lamp in that area of the galley? Seems you'd be running into it all the time.

Not really. It would be above the counter, at the transition to the salon.

Re: Thing attached to overhead

But in that position, wouldn't it tend to swing and
hit that post?

I'm not sure since we don't have it. But the lamp above the table had bungee cords to keep it from swinging when needed; perhaps the galley lamp had something similar.

Re: Thing attached to overhead

Perfect location for a hanging lamp; it can be tethered to limit swinging. The base looks very big. Any chance it's hollow??

Re: Thing attached to overhead

The subject Galley Lamp was fixed to the overhead. It didn't swing.

The lamp is a gimbal mounted, so it will stay vertical athwartship, as well as fore and aft, by it's gimbal, usually up to 30 degrees.

Re: Thing attached to overhead

Another misnomer is the Smoke Bell. It's design is to radiate heat down, and away from the overhead.

It can not control smoke, nor for the matter stop smoke, or even effect smoke. The height of the wick is the only way to control smoke.
