I need a galley box. I ve been going through old books and have found a few ideas. Sam Rabl's book has a nice one to go with his picaroon but it's set up for a specific Coleman stove.
What works for ya ll in a galley box?

Chapelle has a nice little one for his Sailing Scow, Dutch type in the Boatbuilding book
I built one about thirty years ago... It was just fine.

I looked through chappelles Boatbuilding I found the Dutch scow but no galley box. Did you build that scow I ve always liked the idea of it.

Hmmm - My apologies, it seems I have sent you wrong. I dug out my old copy and sure enough it's not in there.
Well, in my mind's eye I saw the sketches and I built one similar to the drawing. I thought it was Chapelle. But hell it could very well have been Sam Rabl. He was clever. It was a long time ago, well over thirty years. I recall making small mahogany dovetailed drawers for the flatware and utensels and a dovetailed carcass with a flat piano hinged top and a drop down front all out of 5/4 old growth white pine. The boards were 18"wide, making a sort of small footlocker. A small SS bowl for a sink and a brass Swede stove with a copper lined partition were in there. Probably inspired by that scow (Or Sam Rabl) I designed and drew it up myself, for sure there was a working drawing ... I'm embarassed. I gave the galley box away, it was nice.
That Chapelle scow, for years I looked at it thinking long and hard about building it, a very well thought out craft, it was just too small.

No, you were right, it is in Chapelle's _Boatbuilding_. It's just not with the Dutch Scow, but on Plate 33, which is one of the drawings for the next boat in that chapter, the 30 foot cruising sharpie.

Thanks Bob, I was thinking, "Whoa man", your losing it...
Yup that's it - page 244- little drawers, swede stove and a sink. Nice
I built that little galley box when I was building a 30 foot Egret type Sharpie, figures...

Great found it. I like what I see. Any recommendations on a safe stove for camp cruising? I hate the idea of an alcohol stove but I understand it is the safest. Thanks

The Origo non-pressurized alcohol stoves are pretty compact and have been well reviewed.

I use those little butane stoves now, they are the best.
Stainless, Amazon $20.00 (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001TF8UY8/ref=pd_lpo_k2_dp_sr_3?pf_rd_p=486539851&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe-1&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B000E58GB6&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=0JHN3H8BA3NQ24THS8XP)
