          Brad, I don't want to be a Nah Sayer here, and I love your idea and where you mounted the BBQ.

          However, I'd have some concerns about shaking and vibration wearing against the single pole and rail fittings.

          I have this same BBQ and it's not light weight.

          I'd fear that it may eventually snap a fitting and leave your nice BBQ laying on the hi-way or at the bottom of the river.

          Any concerns on your end????

            I was thinking the same thing, Rick. Base looks like a rail fitting. Super sleek.

            I love the look, just hopes it's stowable.

            Now I want one. Off to Ebay.......

              Well, I hope that Brad takes my comment the right way.

              I wonder if the single support could be triangulated somehow?

                  Just looking out for you, Brad.

                  It's nice if you can leave it attached. Mine is permanently attached, and I've had no issues.

                    If it's not a permanent mount (stowable) then not needed. If it's a more permanent mount (grill removed) and bradner operates with it underway, he could install angled rail fittings on the mounting pole and run them to the platform, one forward, one toward the kicker, about a foot high or so.

                    Of course, if it's stable, it's moot and we're just entertaining ourselves on a Sunday morning. :hammer

                    Maybe I'll air the boat out today. We're in for a stretch of great weather for the next week. Lows in the 40's, highs will peak at 79 on Saturday. And it's still Winter......

                      Looks more like a lightning rod. That platform ought to light up like a meteor when the strike hits. :tinhat
