This is Part 4 of the Galley Remodel Project that turned into much more than a project involving the Galley. If you’d like to get caught up, check out Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 then come on back over here.
I probably spent way too much time stressing over the countertops. I mean, what material should you use on a boat? And what color?!
It took some soul searching, but I think it was my mom who finally convinced me to just break down & go with granite. It didn’t hurt that my neighbor’s $300k boat had the same type granite I was looking at using.
I paid the local granite shop a visit and we worked out a deal that involved a sum of money and a sunset cruise for their employees. Then, I figured that since I was doing the kitchen, I might as well go ahead and do the bathrooms too, right?
You’re beginning to see how a $150 faucet turns into a $6,000 refit, aren’t you.
Granite day was much anticipated, but first we recovered the front of the cabinets with fresh white Formica…
The granite is here!
You’ll see that I still have some work to do in the kitchen. The last remaining piece is the stove. I just placed the order last week, and a brand new Force 10 3 burner stove should be arriving soon.
Oh, and remember how I said that the old countertops weren’t helping me any in the “wooing girls” department? Within a month of the countertop installation I landed a girlfriend.
But that’s a story for another day.
