Welcome Garry, and congrats on your new Trillium

I kind of hope people will chime in here, instead of via e-mail, because I always like to learn new things; once I see a question like this, I'm curious how it will all turn out

I think that with many of these stoves, the top metal part comes off to reveal the attachments beneath (the lower tray beneath the burner elements has a lip that you will then see, which is probably riveted or screwed to the counter), although I don't speak from direct experience.

House sinks have clips under the rim to hold them on; if the Trillium sink has those you can probably access them after you have a hole where the stove was.

One comment on the scheme: On boats, the sink is always a coveted spot to put things so that they'll stay put, and a drain can be nice when brushing teeth or pouring out coffee. If it were me I might remove the faucet (to make it so you can have a flush counter if you want it) but not the sink. Then you can make a cover, yet still have it there for storage or occasional use (or still remove it later).

If your sink is a "self-rimming" kind, look for some fastening clips underneath, holding the edge of the sink to the counter top from the bottom. Usually has a Phillips head screw in the center of the clip.

If it's a 2-burner Stove, I have one where, after you remove the knobs and grates, you just pop the top surface up and off. This reveals the screws holding the body of the stove down to the counter top.

thanks Raya for the advice , we got talking here, and decided to just do that and keep the sink under a counter top added with hinges , so if we want it ,the sink would still be there . thanks for the help. it sure makes things a lot easier talking to someone who`s had similar problems .

Can you post a picture of the result? We have the same Trillium and are trying to construct and stove cover of some sort to gain counter space. We use our sink for storage and occasionally washing dishes. I think covering half the area will do the trick in our situation. I would love to see what you come up with.
Thanks!
