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.
