We got the new Magma "Newport" grill shortly we bought the boat, but I haven't installed until yesterday.
I decided to get the pedestal mount and install the base out of the way under the swim step lid.

The pedestal disconnects from the Grill and the base. I'll stow the pedastal and the propane can in the transom locker and I made a plywood base

for the grill to mount sit in. It's mounted to the platform the water tank is on.
The lower Black cup that's on the grill will go into the hole in the plywood.
Here's the grill stowed in the bilge.

Thanks Swauk,
Are you bringing that nice 2858 over for the Rendezvous, this summer?
That would make one nice cruiser for that trip.

Todd,
I am sure it will be a great time. I have read tales of many great times at these events. We keep our boat, (Big 'Lena), over on Lake Pend Orielle in north Idaho. We have been there for five years and are quite content with the lake and the people or should I say lack of people...:)
I have a buddy who mounted his Magma BBQ very much like yours except he just mounted it on the surface of the swimstep. I like your idea better. Take care

Very nice Todd. Didn't realize when you first mentioned this that you had an area where you won't see the mount when not in use. Great thinking on storing the BBQ as well. That was always the problem on our 28, where to store it.

Clever installation. I see you drilled a drain hole too. Good idea.

Can't tell from the photos and wanted to check; did you seal all your holes to prevent water intrusion?

Yeah each hole got some 5200 and the drain hole you see if full of 5200. I was going to let it set up then drill a hole through the 5200. I may end up drilling a bigger hole as the 1/4" on may not actually drain that well.

You should check the bedding on the bolts that hold the platform to the transom, those rust streaks usually indicate that water is getting in.

Great job on the pedestal mount

Here's another way that has been proven over time.
Choose the hole size you want for your drain - say it's 1/4". Using successively bigger bits, go over-size by 1/8". That is, start with 1/16, and go all the way up to 3/8". Tape the bottom of the hole closed with masking tape, sealing it on the bottom only. Mix up some epoxy or fibreglass resin and fill the hole until its flush with the deck/platform. Let cure. Remove the tape and drill a pilot hole through the epoxy. Drill your final 1/4" hole. This leaves about 1/16" of epoxy all around to protect the core or matt.

I was thinking along the same lines, but I was going to do it with 5200.
Thanks WiskeyWizard

The 5200 will likely rip and tear if you try to drill through it. The epoxy method is far better.

epoxy it is then. I'll put some color in it so it looks like I had some thought in there too.
Thanks for the advice
