Our galley sink wasn’t terrible but it sure wasn’t great. It was a standard issue, 1975 faucet for cold water only. I tried to make it a little more versatile by adding a sprayer but even that was pretty cheap.
I had a thought that a proper kitchen faucet with a built in sprayer would be handy. I scoped out the faucets at our hardware store but such a set up would be around a hundred dollars. That seemed kind of high for what is really just a convenience item. As luck would would have it, Melissa and I were shopping at a second hand marine store (Second Wave Marine Consignment) Where I found just such a faucet for fifty dollars. To make the deal even sweeter, the guy at checkout marked it down to thirty dollars because I have nice eyes.
So, after three or four trips to the hardware store for plumbing bits and pieces, we have a nice new faucet. It is much higher than the old faucet which makes washing and filling pots easier. This little project also allowed me to cover a hole in the countertop that looked like it been hewn by a disgruntled marmot. If we ever decided to add a salt water faucet, that hole is covered up but still available.
Call me easily amused, now I smile every time use our new faucet.
