|The original Force 10 galley stove|
A new stove? I did not want to undertake an extensive remodel of the galley. Although it is small, it is very efficient. I also did not want to add a propane system to the boat. There is little enough storage on a 25' boat without finding a place for a propane locker. I pondered the addition of an oven (oh boy are they nice) but in the end, decided that the space under the cook-top was more valuable than having an oven. No kerosene; no propane;....that doesn't leave a lot of options for stoves....so Origo it is!
I purchased some stainless steel sheet stock and formed it to add a new surround. Here the pieces have been added to the sides but not the back. A stainless steel pan has been placed in the bottom and a formed piece covers the mahogany in the fromt. All of these changes could be removed in the future and the original Force 10 stove could be re-installed and there would be no clues that another stove had been installed.
