Galley Sink Size


Jack Webb
(Member)

While I was working on W32 last year, I removed the sinks when I replaced the Formica on all the countertops. I found a new sink for the head, but couldn't locate one for the galley of appropriate dimensions. It currently sits in place, but has not been reinstalled.

My hope was to find one that was longer and deeper that would still fit into the cabinet. I recall finding one in a marine salvage store in Ft Pierce, FL. But at $250, I decided to keep looking. I may have found the perfect replacement this week, but unfortunately, I can't find where I recorded the dimensions of the original sink and the depth of the cabinet.

I realize this topic has been discussed before and some "possible" dimensions where thrown about. But I have yet to see any one provide a definitive answer as to what they truly are. If anyone currently lives aboard (or has immediate access to) a factory-finished W32, built somewhere near 1975, could you please measure the outside lip of the sink, so I know whether are not to return or keep the one I just purchased?

Thank you.

Jack - is your boat from the 1st second or 3rd mould? There is a Factory W32 from the 3rd mould that is berthed in our marina and I could measure it for you

Gary:

I found an old photo of my galley sink and determined that the maximum depth of the counter is probably not much more than 14". So, I guess the 15x21x9 sink is going back to Home Depot. (It sure didn't look very big when I bought it.) After a little searching, however, I found one on eBay that will probably fit the bill (and the counter). At 13x15x7 and should give me enough extra size over the original (which I think is probably 10x14x6) to make the replacement worthwhile.

If anyone else is looking to replace their galley sink, this might be worth a look. It was only $59 with shipping. Hey... it's not a Scandvik, but it's not $300 either.

Jack,

I seem to remember my galley counter being 17.5" deep. My father will probably be out there tomorrow and can measure it for you. Alternatively, the sink we removed is still in front of our house - I could have him measure that. I know that it is larger than 14". I just scoured the Westsail build manual and can't find any actual dimensions. Many drawing of the galley and all, but no specs.

Cheers,
Aaron

Thanks, Aaron.

It sure would be easier, if my boat wasn't so far away. Actually, I just made the big step and quit my job. I've put this off for too long. Getting my house ready for market, then driving from Denver to Florida for the last time. After spending a little time finishing up the boat, I'm off for distant shores with nary a look over my shoulder.

I'll send you a couple of photos of my galley, so you can tell if it's likely to be the same size as yours.

Thanks again.

Jack

That would be very kind of you Gary (or Charlotte)... thank you. I'm 2,500 miles from her at the moment. Any idea how might I figure out which mold she came from? I do know there were differences, but I don't know how to tell which was which.

Gary:

My hull number is 438. My guess is that this was the second mold. Does this really make a difference in the galley cabinets? I can probably scrounge up a photo, if that helps.

One way of telling is that the last mold had "pockets" molded into the deck bulwark for stanchions. The first mold had tiny little scuppers.... not the recessed 2 hole scuppers that the 2nd mold had.
Yours is probably from the 2nd mold..but its unlikely that the width of the sink counter
changed. Maybe Bud will chime in.

I'll get the measurement this weekend Jack


Gary and Charlotte Burton

Looks like we posted at the same time
Agree on the 2nd mold


Aaron Norlund

Jack,

I also sent you an email. For anyone else, our old sink was, lip to lip, 16"x27". I remember that the sink went almost all the way to the aft bulkhead and forward fiddle, so it used almost all of the space.

Cheers!
Aaron

Jack,

Hull 221 is factory finished with galley sink dimensions of 11 1/2" X 15 3/4" X 5". Of particular note, the drain is offset toward the boats centerline.
