Looking at where it's sitting, a cautionary tale...

Some folks on a houseboat at Holiday Marina on Lake Lanier were aboard on a very cold night in February...their Charbroil gas grill was in the aft cockpit sitting on an engine hatch. Unbeknownst to them the propane tank was leaking...propane falls, it doesn't rise. All was well until the thermostat turned the heat on again...the switch (which it was determined later had a frayed wire) was in the engine compartment. The resulting explosion blew the sliding glass door at the after end of the cabin off with enough force to drive a shard through a door. One engine hatch landed on the roof of a covered dock two alleys over, they never found the other one....or the grill. All the glass was blown out the of the boats on each side. It was so loud it rattled the windows in the dining room of the YC across the creek. Fortunately the owners were the only ones on the dock that weekend and everyone aboard was at the forward end of the boat so no one was injured.

If the coals are hot enough, the fat/grease should be evaporated to flavor the meat and not drip? Juices dripping on deck, just a problem with gas-operated grills?

No, it's not just a gas grill problem. If it were, lava rock or ceramic brickettes would solve the problem. If you're trying to cook on coals hot enough to evaporate grease, you can forget about chicken or fish for dinner...or any red meat you don't like charred on the outside and rare in the middle!

Believe Flywright wanted me to come portside since his grill was starboard.

Well we used the grill today and it was great. No mess.

Hubby grilled some tuna steaks and some veggies. It was delicious!

If you look close you can see the grill mounted on the upper deck.

I don't have a proper boat barbeque. The semi circular cockpit isn't really set up for it.

We use a large cheap fold up barbie which I set up at the end of the dock finger if cooking for a bunch of people at the marina.
At anchor, we often cook fish or crabs over a campfire on the beach.

Then you definitely could do with one of these Auscan. It would fit splendidly on that round table they have in the cockpits of those Cuddles.
