Monk 36 Galley Modifications

Hi Everyone,

For someone who loves to cook and would love a bit more prep space, am wondering what some Monk 36 owners may have done to create more counter/work space? Would love to find an elegant solution.

Many thanks,

Ah yes, more counter space to store items too large to fit into a cupboard.

Consider flip ups that can be "flipped up" when needed and then secured down for travelling. For the tie down I used 1" wide black webbing strap with some snap fasteners.
I did this for our trailer and it made a BIG difference.

The hardware I got from my local building supply after a wee bit of explanation. THey knew it under a different name. Done enough years ago I don't remember the name.

Our Monk 36 has the stove/oven on the starboard side where the sink is on newer Monks. I've only seen a few early boats with this setup. The sink is next to the refrigerator and the microwave is above the sink on a custom shelf in the aft window space.
