|Looking into the "notch" created by the cockpit settee.|
Rather than wall off the notch (we are putting the DC electrical control elsewhere) we have decided to extend the galley sink countertop into this space providing more counter space area and (hopefully) "opening up" the otherwise cramped space as you move toward the tunnel. Doing this leaves somewhat wasted space in the engine room, beneath this counter extension.
