I have owned two magmas, the round one and the bigger rectangular one. Mediocre at best. I would look at other brands. Someone will chime in.

In our experience - whether boating, rv-ing, what have you - any product with the words "marine" or "rv" attached to it will have cost attached to it as well, when you can find less expensive products without those words that are just as useful (and sometimes better) for your needs.We got one of these:
[img]/media/kunena/attachments/vb/789501=38616-cuisinart portable grill.jpg Here's one at Home Depot: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Cuisinart-Petit-Gourmet-Portable-Propane-Gas-Grill-CGG-180T/202538391 Might want to look around, Amazon for instance. Though not "cheapo" by any means, it is less expensive than the Magmas and other marine/boat grills we looked at. Even better was that he was able to get this grill through his company's store, using "points" earned. Don't know how DIY you are, but what my husband did was mount the grill on a hard, stable surface (in this case it was a hard plastic chopping board from Walmart), then mounted it directly, port side aft. We can remove it whenever we want, but it is stable enough that we just keep it mounted most all the time. We use the 1 lb propane canisters. Have yet to empty the 1st one, which we bought last summer.Pay no attention to the clowns in the photo, but it's the only pic we presently have that shows the grill. If I could've cropped it, I would've. (This is our son, "toting" me on Mother's Day 2013, btw. Yes our family clowns a lot!) What you can't see is the smoke, since we had something grillin' at the time the pic was taken.
[img]/media/kunena/attachments/vb/789501=38617-Adam toting Mom, Mothers Day 2013.JPG Found a cover for it on Ebay. Don't remember what we paid for it, I just remember it was pretty cheap.Whether it's brats, filet mignon, catch of the day, veggies, whatever - this grill does the job, and quite well!The Admiral :arr

Hello.
Happy New Year!

Well my wife got me a Magma Catalina BBQ which I love for Christmas but now I have to find the best place without ruining the boats fiberglass. I will not have the BBQ attached all the time but need to figure out where the best place on the stern would be for the attachments and what attachments I need to buy.

:) I have the round Magma with the pole holder mount attachment so I can use it in any of the 4 on my 2859. It has worked real good for me, going on 5 years now.
I stow it in port side compartment under forward v-berth.

I bought a webber Q 100 and made my own mount works great.

We have the 15" Magma. Its always worked great for us. I keep the rail mount attached to the grab rail on the transom and store the grill in our cabinet under the captain's seat.

It heats up quickly and cools down just as fast and does a nice job of searing. Fatty foods will flare up, though I think that problem would happen on any grill. I am able to cook bone-in skinless chicken on low with no problems.

I am concerned with where I store the camp style propane tanks due to possible leakage. Our boat has a transom storage compartment that has a water drain overboard, so I keep a couple in there.

The Magma's may seem expensive, but mine has been around since 1997 and should last me at least another season or two.

I just bought a Kuuma Elite 216 with a warming rack comparable to a Magma Catalina but almost half the price. Mounted on the rear rail.
The grill works great. No complaints at all other than the warming rack vibrates when the boat is running at very low speed. (1-2 mph). I'll just stick something in there.

I have a Magma Catalina and not a fan. I have to sit it down in the cockpit out of the wind or it just won't heat. I had a Magma kettle previously and it worked well.

You might want to look at something like this. www.nexgrill.com/product/nexgrill-stainl...-top-portable-grill/ . My local Costco has them for $99.00. I have this one www.nexgrill.com/product/820-0333/ that I used on our 28' sailboat. I'm going to make a mount for it to use on our 28' Carver. We also use it with our travel trailer. It fits in one of the lower storage compartments and I have a quick disconnect set up to run it off the trailer's gas system.
