We now have both the worktop extension and the forward bulkhead dry fitted.
Absolutely delighted with the extra space in the galley. Makes it much more practical for living aboard.
For us the compromise in reduced seating is well worth it. The whole starboard seating might change now. The probably can be more comfortable with just a straight settee that is wider with a sloping back. Plus it would make a more comfortable sea berth. We will just have to sort out how to turn it into a guest double bed.
