Sliding galley

Post by rjantz3568 » Sun Feb 02, 2020 3:28 pm

Can anyone tell me the dimensions of the 2007 sliding galley ? The po did away with the galley and built cabinets along the port side making the interior very cramped. I want to make a new sliding galley. Also what type of waste hose for the sink drain. Thanks

I've got a 2013 I can measure if you can verify they are the same.

If you find out they're the same, I'm glad to give you the dimensions. Just have to walk downstairs and find a tape... 8)

DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THE GALLEY WAS CHANGED BETWEEN 2007 & 2013???

I'm pretty sure the sliding galley version of the M never changed. In fact, the Tattoo seems to use the same molds for the galley.

So if you have a sliding galley, it's the same.

Thanks Russ!

I've got an appointment this morning, but will get the dimensions today.

Excuse the mess. The boat is wrapped for the winter.

Since you are starting from scratch, you might incorporate some ideas from BOAT's galley mod
Here
https://macgregorsailors.com/forum/view ... =8&t=26655

Fun video of the mod might help you see how it slides on that track.


Since you have the luxury of designing it, you might want to browse the galley mods for more ideas.

If the original track is still there, BWY sells the brackets that slide on it.

I see Ray beat me to the punch :D

I would just add the following (as I tend to be a bit over concerned with minutiae)...
Base:
Bottom: 22.5 x 42; 2-1/2" radius corners
Top: 25 X 43.5: 3" radius corners

Front face is vertical. Rear face is angled to meet dimensions at top and bottom. Left and right ends appear to be equally angled

Drain hose looks like 1" ID coil flex.

As you can see from the photos in other posts, the work surface edges overlap the base and the sink favors the left side. I'm assuming you will buy a sink, but if you want those dimensions, I'll be glad to get them.

Please post pics of your progress!

With a hot glue gun, some scrap pieces of wood, cardboard, you could make a nice mock up of the gallery you want and user it for patterns to build from.

What I should have added in my original post, is the dimensions I gave are the general dimensions. I guess I should not have assumed that you would be creative in what you build.

You can be quite imaginative with the end result. I for one look forward to seeing the end product. Drawers, shelves, etc.

I installed a two burner propane range and and a stainless bar sink. Also have an additional electric pump faucet connected to a 30 gallon (136 liter) bladder in the bow.

Thanks for the measurements and the advise. Will post photos when I'm done. It may take awhile.
