[QUOTE=drousy88;1150067]any suggestions on what i have.

microwave
toaster oven
2 stove top
butter knife
kitchen knives knife
forks
spoons
metal non stick pan (this will make fine grilled cheese)
large metal non stick pot
small metal non stick pot
spatula
grilled cheese maker
electric can opener
can opener
strainer
can crusher
mechanical garbage compactor
vacuum seal tuperware
alluminum foil

plate
bowl
cheese grater
paper towel
tongs
scissors
antibacterial spray (it's called 'bleach')
cleaning rag (scrubbie pads)

--avoid things that make trash, and you don't need the compactor: ergo no plastic nor aluminium wraps, nor paper towels.

I found the Boat Galley to be invaluable. www.theboatgalley.com

Re: what do you have stored in your galley

sitting at a dock is different than cruising and anchoring....each has different requirements as to necessary galley items.
i use as little as possible electricity, so i would have to cross out all your electrical items.
i use plasticware and paper plates..i have real ones but i dont use the extra water to clean em--'paper rocks.....
dont forget food storage.....
have fun. also dont forget the fridge.....could come in handy...

welcome to cf.....sounds like a project.

Re: what do you have stored in your galley

I made what the crew said were awesome grilled ham and cheese sandwiches in 25 kt breezes and 5 ' seas last week with a nonstick fry pan and some butter! Make sure the stove is gimballed or it'll be all over the floor!

You can get a toaster at Campers World to fit over the stove burner and make good toast.

Stomp on the garbage, put it in the dink and toss it when you get ashore. No electric can opener unless you have really bad carpal tunnel and a really sharp paring knife will chop those eggs and olives up just fine.

Love the software package that shows your design! what is it?

Fair winds....

Ditch the microwave and the trash compactor.

Re: what do you have stored in your galley

You're absolutely right Zee but I just love real butter on grilled bread. Makes it so greasy and palatable!!

Zeehag, I never had you pegged as an environamental hooligan. I would have expected you would care more than to use disposable plates etc. I'm disappointed. Seriously.

To the OP - take the oven grill, ditch the microwave, and don't forget to take a potato peeler. Or a cheese slicer, which doubles as a potato peeler on our boat.

ALso, try Scottish eggie bread. Soak your bread in eggs. Make into a cheese sandwich and slowly fry them. Delicious

Re: what do you have stored in your galley

+1 for refrigeration. If you rearranged things a little in your diagram, you could build a top-loading reefer into the corner of your counter tops. Quite common placement.

+1 for ditching the micro. You'd be amazed at what you can do with the propane stove/oven. We have a UK stove and it has this "grillade" shelf. Awesome for toast and a quick grilled cheese.

Good luck.

Cheers,
S/V Octopussy

Equipping a galley depends very much on how much and what type of cooking will be done and personal preference (and what your crew demand LOL).
Time saving devices tend to be less necessary when cruising in a leisurely way .

I WOULD OMIT:
microwave
toaster oven
grilled cheese maker
electric can opener
can crusher
mechanical garbage compactor
egg salad crusher

ALL GOOD:
spatula
can opener
cheese grater
strainer
vacuum seal tuperware
alluminum foil
paper towel
tongs
scissors
antibacterial spray
cleaning rag
coffee maker (Essential! I use a stovetop espresso pot. Nothing beats the smell of freshly brewed coffee )

I WOULD ADD:
Kettle
Thermos
Mugs
Glasses
Champagne glasses (essential as well on our boat LOL )
Potato peeler
Large serving spoon
Ladle
Whisk
Bottle opener
Pepper grinder
Manual juicer
2 stainless steel mixing bowls (in addition I keep several 1kg yoghurt containers for mixing things in)
Several multipurpose silicon cake/tart pans (they don't rust or rattle and they are lightweight and can be jammed between pots to stop rattling)
Metal baking tray
High sided baking dish
Lots of serving dishes (picked up on travels)
Plastic lunch sized bags (can be stored on a hook inside one of the doors)

My only electrically powered appliance is a low power stick mixer.
My one indulgence is a small Italian machine I can roll pasta with .

COMMENTS:
Knives: I use 3 good quality ones - chopping knife, bread knife, paring knife)
Forks, spoons, knives, teaspoons, dinner plates, bowls: I carry six of each
Metal non stick pan: good for eggs and toasted sandwiches
Large metal non stick pot: my pressure cooker doubles as a big pot for all purposes
Small metal non stick pot: I carry one other copper based pot. Buy the best quality you can. Non stick will not last long.

Line every kitchen shelf and drawer with non slip matting (available at chandleries or carpet places). High density foam (the type used as beach mats) it great cut up and wedged between items to stop them rattling.

From your diagram it looks like our two burners may be electric???? If so, your power draw will be huge.
The exhaust fan may not work too well where you have located it (directly above the stove top would be best)

I find it invaluable having a return on the kitchen, creating a small U shape I can wedge myself safely into when underway or in rough anchorages. If you did have room for a U in your design, it would unfortunately be going the wrong way (you need to brace mainly against rolling motion and not so much against pitching motion).

You have omitted a kitchen sink - for good drainage the best spot for these is as close to the centreline as possible. This looks it would be under the exhaust fan in your design.

Are you planning to have a fridge?

Re: what do you have stored in your galley

I just looked through the galley drawers to see what you're missing. According to my inventory, you should also have:
* 3 brass locks, with assorted keys that don't appear to fit locks
* spanner tool for tank inlets
* 2 cans Bon Ami cleanser
* toy mouse for cat
* hair brush for cat
* hat retainer
* 2 sunglasses retainers
* sail pre-feeder
* pack of sharpie markers
* 1/4" fid
* marlinspike
* submersible dive light
* rescue whistle
* spray bottle of Wine Away stain remover
* monkey fist key chain
* kayak Santa Christmas ornament
* fuse kit
* sharpening stone
* the ratcheting screw driver Wonderblond keeps stealing from my toolbox
* 2 Yanmar keys
* Canal plaque from Stratford-upon-Avon
* brass plaque inscribed "Marriages performed by the Captain are good for the duration of this voyage only."

Re: What do you Have Stored in your Galley

the fridge is going to be an ice box under a settee next to the galley. i don't like propane and should be able to afford the electrical use of the stoves and microwave. the seat where i prepare food will keep me from moving underway. and the exhaust fan is to pull the "cooking fumes" out of the companion way.

Re: What do you Have Stored in your Galley

I suppose that potato peelers might have some use - but why bother, for carrots and potatoes just scrub, chop, and cook - a lot less work and more nutrients. If you want mashed potatoes just use the flakes - a lot less work and the same nutrients (starch being starch). What is the round, table looking thing? - a table or a stool; I am thinking that this would be good to eliminate as it looks like a hazard.

Re: What do you Have Stored in your Galley

drousy88,

My list would be very similar to SeaworthLass, but I would like to add a few comments.

You need to keep your power draw down. You need to crunch some numbers to see how much power you will need, especially if your are going to do any overnight passage making. If you don't want a propane stove have a look at alcohol stoves.

Your stove top should be against the hull and gimbaled so that you can use it underway.

I would also recommend that you incorporate a safety belt that you can clip on with in rough weather. Get rid of the stool that you have pictured.
