There was a nice, good condition parquet floor below. It would look good refinished.

But I am not a huge fan of parquet. What to do? Refinish it? Lay new carpet?

Well look at that. A hatch right on top of the engines. With a walk in ER I hadn't noticed this before. It was well cover with parquet and carpet.

I went to see my new friends at Houston Hardwoods. They showed me 1/2" marine ply faced with teak and holly. $179 per sheet. Sounds good. Load up my truck boys!

You can see how the hatch is now framed and can be removed easily.

Floor looks great. How did you fasten the plywood? Glue only? Glue and nails?

Greetings,
Mr. Mc. Looks marvelous. Was the hidden floor hatch a factory install do you think?

Greetings Mr RT. That is a good question for which I don't have an answer. I would guess it's factory original because I believe the boat came with the parquet floor.

The next project I am going to show you is the galley refit. Although everything in the galley was working it was definitely dated. It had a 18 cf whirlpool refrigerator/freezers so well as a countertop fridge, a 0.9 cuft microwave and a princess three burner electric stove with oven. The countertops were corian. There was a large deficit of cabinet space. My biggest pet peeve is the double stainless sink couldn't hold any of my larger pots so washing them was a chore. I like to cook and since I didn't have any women on board to tell me how they would lay it all out, I got to do it myself as I pleased.

I bought all new appliances which consisted of a Summit 12 cuft refrigerator/freezer, a summit four burner ceramic stove top and a Samsung 2.0 cuft convection microwave. The new fridge required less space that the whirlpool, it is taller but less wide and features that make it more energy efficient. With the convection microwave, it's big enough to cook a good size turkey so I no longer need an oven. The below counter top fridge was removed.

Both fridges removed. Getting the big one out was a real project. Had to remove doors and tip it just so.

Here you can see the spaces for the new fridge and microwave as well as new doors for the space that will become a pots and pans storage cabinet.

Meanwhile, in the location of the old stove, a new cabinet with cutlery drawer. The cabinet will become the pantry with two slide out shelves

Not so easy. The doors contain electrical wiring with only a little play. Somebody had to hold them while two other maneuvered the fridge
