Catalina 34 microwave

HI folks,

Have new (to us) 1998 Catalina 34 which we are trying to get ready for the summer and sailing. I have seen many pics with the middle cabinet in the galley replaced with a microwave oven. That cabinet measures a little over 9 inches high. I am having a very difficult time finding a microwave oven whose height is 9 inches. What microwaves (and models ) do people have and how did you get it to fit in there. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Jean (from Solitude)

Mine is higher than that so telling you what I have (Panasonic) isn't going to do you much good. An outside height of nine inches is going to be a very small microwave and I think you would be happier with a larger one even if you have to find another place to put it.

That said, the Internet is your friend here. You will find a lot more models on the Internet than in your local stores.

Although rare, if you can find one with a manual timer or electronic but no clock, you'll be better off. The microwave in my home won't even heat water without knowing the time day, date and year. On a boat you won't have constant power and this would be a very big hassle.
