Looks real sharp Sid! I think it was a smart move to move away from the carpet behind the galley...it just doesn't make sense.
I like the darker wood-grain. I've contemplated sanding and staining mine a little darker. Who knows I get bored in the winter lol.
I'm happy for ya guys...I hope you get to use the hell out of it and have a great time!
