What’s been cooking in the galley…
I took advantage of the yard time while waiting for the new tube to arrive, to make some improvements to Swell’s galley. Have a look…
Swell's floors were curved to the hull in the galley area which was causing knee and back aches…Olivier, master wood worker, helped me to build a small step on either side to make the floors flat.
The frames for the new steps.
Self-portrait of me decorating the new floors with mosaic-ed strips of scrap fabric. The intention was to make it # easy to see where the step starts, reduce slipping, and make it look pretty of course…:)
Then commenced an epoxy nightmare, where I poorly mixed the resin to seal the mosaic and spent three days scraping off the sticky, uncured epoxy…I miraculously managed to make them look okay in the end.
The steps finished and set in place…check out my refinished seafoam green countertops, too!

I’m a follower. What’s the writing there Liz? I can read “Don’t take anything personally.” Are there your rules? :) Cheers to you! to Swell!

Looks very pretty but why two strips on Port and three on Starboard?

I’m guessing you can’t wait to get somewhere off shore where there is no smell of resin or varnish!
