Hi I have just purchased an M36CC circa 1990's
I am looking for a cover for the cooker which also makes up part of the work surface, mine is missing.
Anyone have one spare or does the MOA have the original plans so I can have one manufactured?
Many thanks, Mike.

Hello Mike and welcome.
Are you sure the cooker should have a cover? I asked around when I bought my 36 and was given to understand that there never was one.
You can find original drawings owned by the MOA in the Technical Library, look for the Moody 36(90s) section and then 'Princess records'. But I don't recall seeing any cooker area detail there.

Sanderling came with its original cooker cover but we very rarely use it. Mike, I can probably take some photos for you when next over in France towards the end of the month. In the meantime, just check that it is not slid in its storage spot on the floor behind the hinged flap below the cooker!

Could you do the same for me too, please, Tony, I'd be interested to see that. Thanks.

Guy, good afternoon

If you have the small aluminium suport rail running either side of the cooker slot as you can see you on the first photo, I would suggest that you originally had a cover that is now sitting in the first/last owners garage.

The second photo shows the cover in situ, you will note that it is in two halves, joined by a piano hinge.

The underside is protected with a piece of the same alloy sheeting that the sides of the cooker space is clad in. You can also see from this shot that either end there is a short length of ally that fits beyond the support rails to stop it sliding out when closed, but in our case the unit is a very snug fit so that would not be an issue.

Measurements as per these pics. When not in use unit is supposed to sit folded up on a pair of ally rails behing the flappy door under the cooker but I did not realise that until after I had put a gas alarm sensor in there so now when not in use, it sits on the shelf in the passage cabin.

Hope that helps, Tony

Didn't realise it lived under the cooker.
I normally keep mine hanging down behind the cooker with the front wooden piece (having a senior moment, can't remember what it's called) sitting proud and facing to the rear of the worktop keeping the metal side facing the cooker.
You'll notice from Tony's photos that there is a gap at the rear of aluminium rails which is where mine slides down without being folded.
The previous owner had it in that position so I have continued.
As Tony says, it's a snug fit and there is no movement when at sea.
I normally only use it to cover the cooker when the boat is stored ashore but it would be handy if the first mate decides to bake afloat.

Regards,

Pat

Mike, mine is exactly the same as Tony's but I've stowed mine behind the cooker since I bought the boat.
The previous owner had it in this position when I viewed the boat and I've left it that way.
I presumed that the alloy on the underside was to protect it in the position I leave it in and as Tony says, it's a tight fit.
