  1. E39 Galley Refresh

    No need to reconfigure the galley. We needed new sinks to replace the pitted old ones. I was astonished at the cost of "marine" sinks! The fiddles were banged up pretty good and lots of 46 year old plywood was delaminating. The formica countertops had seen better days. Over the last few years I replaced the stove and built a new refrigerator from vacuum insulated panels, so nothing to do there.

  3. E39 Quarter Berth Remodel Part 1

    We finally arrived at the point in the never ending list of boat improvement projects where it made sense to start modifying the interior of SolAire. I've been resisting doing this over the years due to the expense of doing it correctly and also I'm not one to just modify for the sake of modifying.
