Galley

A kitchen on a ship. The galley and the messroom are usually on the same deck. It is ideal to have provision stores at the same level. If this is not possible, direct stairs should connect the galley and provision stores.

Galley arrangement should be carefully thought through, as to minimise any movement during food preparation, cooking and serving as well as washing-up. The range should be arranged with its length athwartships, as to minimise the danger of an accident – a person being thrown onto hot plate by ship rolling motion. A cook should have a separate WC arranged.
