Sancerre once had a built in and very inefficient electric cool box aft of the cooker, this was not working when I bought the boat and probably had not for years. With all of the insulation and voids around it a lot of space was being wasted.
|Lots of wasted space.|
Replacing the fuel tank and moving the water tank (see previous posts) meant working under the sink unit so I decided to sort this out at the same time. The capping piece on the front / top of the unit had been damaged by a previous cooker so that could also do with replacing.
|A big crack & unsightly holes in the Teak capping piece.|
|Lots more space, the bin is hardwood marine ply, epoxy coated |
on both sides with carpet to deaden sound as things move about.
| The timber blocks support a tray for ready to use items, fresh veg etc.|
The new Teak capping pieces cost more than the rest of the job together, even sourced as simple planed all round (PAR) timber to a standard size, fortunately I have a bench router to round the edges saving machining costs.

before and out of frame.
