Easy Microwave Installation
I don't like cutting into anything. A few owners of earlier
C34s have installed microwaves under the sink, but I just
don't have the heart to take a jigsaw to the teak. This
installation is low-impact.
Sears makes some very small 110v microwaves that fit under
the nav table. Purchase the cabinet-hanging kit, which enables
you to suspend the unit from the bottom of the nav table.
You'll need to move the nav table support back to make room
for the microwave. The down side of this modification is that
you can't put your legs under the nav table when you're
sitting on the port settee -- but then again, I've already got
some much junk under there (charger, etc) that this was a
dicey proposition anyway. Purchase a couple of rubber
crutch tips, and size a 3/4" dowel to provide support.
It's really nice to have the microwave for cooking at the dock
