Galley Safety Rails

Posted by on April 10, 2013

The weather wasn’t particularly storm, the boat was beam reaching nicely on the starboard tack. Beth had her galley strap on as she prepared some food. Then just as she unclipped, the boat lurched and she was thrown right across the cabin. Fortunately she came to rest on the port bunk, unfortunately her head hit the locker door which gave way and absorbed most of the shock. That experience convinced Norm and Beth they needed to upgrade their galley safety provisions. In New Zealand they had these rails fabricated. They don’t replace the galley strap, but augment it. Now when they are at sea, a safety strap is clipped across the opening to enclose the whole area.

The safety rail also serves as a support when the cook is at the sink or ice chest.

By extending the rail forward along the side of the cabinetry, it forms one more secure handhold to help any crew moving through the cabin.
