Exactly how deep under water does your grill work?

Art, I have to ask, with all do respect to your guru status. Are you aground or are you having nav issues. We don't see that kind of beach up here in the N.W. much. Seriously though are you tied off to something or anchored. Just curious.

We also use a 20# bottle with a feed long enough to reach the Magma on the rail hanging outboard so any grease drips in the water. the bottle is lashed in the corner. I can disconnect the hose from the BBQ and hook up to the crab cooker without moving the bottle.

Front of boat is in 2 to 4 foot water... rear is 16 to 20 foot deep. SF Delta Islands have clean-of-growth steep edge drop offs in current driven sloughs. Island bays get silted with bottom growth that actually reaches surface; often even at high tide. This delta is most unusual in its context. Great easy-peazie fun too! Lots o' swimming!!

In this pict to which you refer, I've a grappling anchor on shore in front. some times in different locations we set a rear anchor too

My last email to Worthington stated that I may refill them myself. That got their attention big time. You don't get too many emails in all CAPS, which in netiquette means they are yelling at you.

Duct tape the bottom of the new bottle. They sell black and white duct tape that won't look so tacky.

or

Spray the bottom of the bottle with WD-40 to delay the rust.

See there...two jobs for the two top go-to tools in any man's tool box.

Very simple, position the bottle under the pit so the grease drips on it, no more rust.

Thanks Steve.

I have always thought of Louisiana as being our closest foreign country...especially at Contraband Days at LC. Used to take our boat over from Galveston to a friend's camp north of the RR bridge.

I guarantee that some coon ass will have his propane bottle under the grill on his pontoon boat.

That picture has exactly the plastic cup that I seek. Not the big base with the words but just above it.

Seasalt,

PM me with your address and I'll send you a couple cuffs like that when I'm done with my current 1 lb bottles. I just bought a couple at Wally World for $5.37 for 2 bottles with the plastic cup at the bottom. When they're empty, the bottom caps are yours.

Boatpoker, It's actually not illegal to refill the one pound tanks. I've seen a prototype of a one pound tank that was designed to be refilled by the owner from a larger tank.
It never went into production because, while it would be legal to refill it, once refilled it's illegal to transport it!

Following is a quote from the label on a Worthington tank.
"Federal law forbids transportation if refilled - penalty up to $500,000 fine and 5 years imprisonment"

You could get one of these

I have the 10 lb version, it lasts a long time. I wish I had bought the 6 LB.
You will have to refill them, easy to do in crab and crawfish boil crazy Louisiana.

Thanks Flywright but I have two left with the cups that I can remove. BTW, I went to Walmart yesterday and all theirs have the metal rings.

The base in the image I posted came as part of that single burner "stove"... guess you could always buy one of those
