Had Magma "party size"... worked fine, had to orient the lid as a windscreen when it was windy, blew out sometimes, but not a big deal. I agree about stuff rolling off into the water, easy to s
New boat came with a large Dickenson (-sen?) "Sea-B-Que".... much nicer. Very well made, easier to use all the rectangular cooking area as opposed to Magma''s circle, Things not so likely to go overboard. It''s hooked up directly to the propane tanks, which is nice (we used the little disposable bottles for the Magma). My only concern is the weight on the stern rail. It''s a much beefier unit than the Magma. We like to leave it on the rail unless we''re making a long passage, and I wonder if it''s too heavy for that.
Whatever you decide, watch eBay for a few weeks for used ones. You can get a great deal. It won''t be shiny and pristine, but your brand new one won''t be after 3 uses, either...
