If you are not already related to CruisingDad, you're soon going to feel that you are. He has so many different types of grills on board that his proudest piece of deck gear is his bbq retrievel unit. He had to sacrifice his davitts to mount it, and some say he resembles a Navy salvage tug design that never made it off the drawing boards, but he is quite proud of it. He claims to have made recoveries while full and by, but that claim is tempered by the fact that he may be the only sailing vessel legally entitled to be "constrained by draft".
He'll probably be along after awhile to tell you about it, although I'd keep the location of loss a secret. Be forewarned, do not be confused when discussing matters electrical with him. Many posters assume that when he posts "kW-hrs" he means amp-hours. He means what he says. (g)
