  • Got a hand me down Magna Round grill from my sailing cousin
  • Used it one year without issue
  • Cleaned it up real well over winter
  • Bought a nice steak, a 6-pack, and one of those add boiling water rice pilaf packages.
  • Headed out the boat (on a mooring) for a relaxing dinner/solo overnight.
  • While trying to clamp the grill onto the stern rail, thing flipped and grate went into the harbor.
  • Way too dark (night) to try and dive and look for it.
  • Tried to figure a McGuyver grate out, but not such luck.
  • Ended up cooking the $12 Porterhouse steak and the rice together (only one pot on board).
  • Edible, but don't recommend.

Wife mistakenly dropped a One-Touch winch handle over the side, thinking she was dropping it into the cockpit behind her. Wasn't too concerned when I said she dropped it overboard as her response was "It floats, we can just turnaround and get it." I said, no it sinks like a rock, to which she replied the Orange handle means it floats. We turned around to look for it, but......
If you liked my advice/response, give me some rep points. If you didn't......well what do you expect, it was free.
