The barbecue

We have been wanting one But i found the prices rather painful until this weeks sale price of 120 dollars

The even more painful thing is the price of the mounts and in the case of this small unit none of the mounts were rated to keep the barbecue in place while moving which seems a bit silly




So i thought a bit a started drawing and this seemed pretty solid and at a cost of 20" of 1' 6061 easy to swallow



And it even fit i am currently using a dry bag for bottle storage as again i cant bring myself to pay for a bottle bag made of material that i am sure will not last all that long
bljones, jimgo and blutoyz like this.

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Re: The barbecue

When we used bottles for our gas barbecue, we stored them in a PVC tube made out of PVC plumbing pipe. I believe that 2" works well but you would have to measure for yourself. Attach a cap on the bottom with a hole drilled to allow for any escaped propane to be released. Make the collar up top big enough so you can store a bottle with the valve attached so you don't have to remove it which is the biggest cause of leaky bottles, add feet to attach to a stantion and you have a safe storage for 2 bottles.

We now connect to a propane cylinder mounted on a davit so we don't have to use those leaky bottles. Besides, the PVC tube looks like a rocket launcher! An added bonus!
