That doesn't sound like a BBQ to me...either a gas grill or even charcoal...

Probably one of them damn composting toilet guys ridding himself of the "coffee filters"...

Awww Poopy, we don't go half way on a C400. If it was my boat on a bad day, he would have written about how this blinding light and 90' tsunami rocked the anchorage when this crazy Texan lit his grill after forgetting he left the gas on...

Don't go sweeping your deck as you go by in hopes that he can put 2 and 2 together. That's pretty much passive aggressive. If you want to let him know what happened, just tell him. If someone told me this happened to them while I was BBQing, I would think twice about neighboring boats and be more careful.
Absolutely agree. How can we reasonably expect someone to fix something we don't KNOW they are aware of?

Not exactly. Historically the first person anchored was there first, and subsequent arrivals should defer to their predecessors. Too close? The later arrival moves.

I like your idea Tanya. Generally a 6 oz Banks sinker bouncing off the deck or hatch gets their attention. As you know accidents do happen. However, I would disagree that "most" people don't do things for a purpose. Most just don't care.

We use paper to start our charcoal instead of that match light stuff or charcoal lighter. What you were seeing are the paper fragments that go airborne when you mix the charcoal up.

I can't say for sure but would bet they didn't intend for your boat to get covered w/ the stuff.

Gezz, between this & the generator thread, sailors sure seem to be a touchy lot.

Re: Barbecue etiquette

Ruined one G&T

But the black bits washed off easily with sea water and a deck scrubber. It was definitely the barbecue as I could see the rise and fall of the bits of ash.

I was reluctant to move as it was dusk and the anchorage was crowded. We had a good spot and were well dug in.

But I was tempted to dinghy over and at least inform him of his ashfall.

Barbecue etiquette

I don't know that area well, but I have seen ash fall like snow in the evening on the Colima coast. I think it's from processing sugar cane...
But if you're posi it was the BBQ, polite inquiry never hurts. They prolly didn't even realize they were bothering someone
