Kind regards,
Curtis
Yes - would like to know how it goes for you. Let's keep in touch

I don't know if the double SS units would help with her aboard, but nearly every updated galley I've seen done on Manatees (if there ever was a live-aboard boat) has gone with the big single.

What about the counter tops? I figured if I'm going to change-out the sink, it would be time to do that too.
Another vote for single. And yes, I plan to replace the counter tops at the same time. I'm saving my pennies to do a full galley remodel at some point. Both fridges and the freezer are probably due for a change out soon.

Yes - I have remodeled a kitchen with one of the granite substitutes. They look good. Some of them are made with reconstituted granite in some kind of substrate.

IKEA has great SS sinks that might fit where your double now is.

It has a good sized single bowl and like most Euro sinks a large SS flat surface to drain or prep., or set hot pots on.

No one identified yet. The plan is a couple of years out so I haven't gotten as far as finding someone to do the work. Of course I'd be interested in who you find if you get it done first!
