I’ve never been so exicted waiting for a shipment to arrive.
My new sink drains for the galley are going to arrive “today by 8pm”.
For the first time, I’ll be able to pump fresh water from the on-board tank and have it run through the galley sink and NOT dump water
into the cabinet below.
Now, before I get too carried away, the description of this page is “sometimes, you do it right the first time” - unfortunately, I did not start this project doing things “right”.
The galley on Loafers Glory has a sink which is a 2-basin with “standard” 2 inch drain holes.
So, what’s a standard? Here you go:
First, verify the required drain size of your sink!
- Sinks with 1 1⁄2” Drains are generally used as head sinks. 1 1⁄2” drains are the standard size drain for lavatory sinks in North America.
- Sinks with 2” Drains can be used as galley or head sinks. This is the standard size for most sinks in Europe and the rest of the world.
- Most vessel sinks use a 1 3⁄4” Drain and are generally used as head sinks. 1 3⁄4” drains are the standard size drain for vessel sinks in North America and Europe.
Seems simple, right? Well, just remember that 2” drains are actually 2 1⁄16” (sometimes) and
