As with all other areas which required painting or repairs it was also decided for the kitchen area to take it apart and remove as much as possible the wood which can be removed for proper sanding and painting as well as inspecting the condition of the wood.
After the paraffin cooker was removed the base of for the cooker was removed, one can see that this is not an original design for the position of the cooker, it looks to me that the original cooker has been removed and replaced by a Taylor cooker.
When the 6 screw in the wood were removed it was still impossible to remove the plank
The reason that the plank could not be removed was that there was another screw holding the plank in place which was located in the forward wall where the drawers are placed in.
With the removed plank it was now possible to get behind the cold storage area and clean it out , as can be seen lots of different things ended up over the years behind this cold storage from a ceramic serving dish to snickers and tea,
With stainless steel plates removed one can clearly see that in the past a cover must have been in place to close the cooking area, most likely the Taylor cooker is higher than the original delivered cooker. Light line on below drawing shows that a wooden support strip has been in place in the past.
The planks near the window frame were also removed and sanded and varnished next picture shows the bottom shelf and all other planks installed of the cabinet .
First section to be installed is the below section in the picture
Second section to be installed is the below section which holds the cups.
Sliding doors were in a good condition only required a good cleaning.
The Steel shelf was coated again with a new layer of plastic with self adhesive.
The next two pictures showing the finished product.
Taylor cooker was overhauled and works as it should be again.
One of the reasons that I keep cooking on a paraffin cooker is that I think Taylor makes a good cooker as well as I think that it is safer on a boat to cook with paraffin tan with gas especially a boat as the Storebro where it will be difficult to create an area for safe storage of gas with an outlet overboard.
From some scrap Mahogany planks I made a cover to protect the cooker and create some more working space in the kitchen area as can be seen from the below picture the kitchen is finished now.
