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.

Question Magma review?

Magma grills seem to spark love/hate reactions. I'm ready to buy a boat grill to mount on our Camano Troll. Very interested in active user's input.

Thanks

Black cover over Magma Grill to left on railing. Purchased 2008.

That is old photo, BBQ still working fine. Many a great BBQ'd meal. I understand the new models have some sort of "heat distribution plate" under the steel grill. Have not heard good things about it. Guess Magma also still sells propane BBQ without that plate and with just the steel grill. We really like our now 9 yr old Magma... with just a steel grill. No sign of wearing out yet!

We'll stick to electric grills. Do an amazing job and don't have all the other worries. Miele, Gaggenau, Kenyon.

All other appliances on out boat are electric. It's pleasantly rewarding to BBQ over a flame while standing on sun deck... watching "water world" flow by!

For us it's pleasant to grill on an electric grill on the flybridge or on the aft deck, watching "water world" flow by.

We have one of the round Magma propane grills, and it works OK even if sometimes a bit bothered by high winds.

The control always seems a bit counter-intuitive to me, so when we first got it I thought we only had BLAST FURNACE or OFF... but once I sorted out the labeling on the control, lower temps came a bit easier.

Haven't used any competitive products, so can really compare...

We use this set up. First we installed a Scotty side mount on the Port aft section of our Selene. Had to use a piece of 3/4 inch starboard as a spacer to clear the cap rail. Then I picked up a 90 degree Scotty mount that goes on to the side mount with big wing bolts, they came with the kit. Picked up the fish cleaning board off of eBay. A guy down in Florida makes them in all sizes, we wanted a big one that would support the Weber gas grill, tools, platters and be easy to clean. Oh ya, it also is a great fish cleaning station.
Remove the two wing bolts, and the cleaning station comes right off and we can put the Scotty down rigger on.
During the winter we remove it all for the Canvas to cover everything.

By the way, the Weber grill is the only way to go. My experience with Magma's or any other Stainless grill for that matter have not been pleasant. This is the grill we had on the Coach before we got the boat. Its now 7 years old. Once or twice a year I remove from the boat while the power washer is out and spray the daylights out of it.

And on this trip, Tom on ASD is so impressed that they are searching for one themselves.

Can you please show us a picture of the mount from the inside? Was it store bought?
Got the part about the fish station, it's the actual mount that is iluding me.

Bay Pelican has a Magma rectangular. We had a stainless bracket fabricated so it mounts to the cap rail (teak) and then slightly over the water. The drip tray takes care of any drips.
