      I have had a kumma and a magma(the large boxy ones), both get rediculously hot. You learn to cook differently on these grills, once you sort it they work great and the food coming off tastes excellent. They are basically the same design, I have a magma now, the only reason is it was on sale cheaper then the kummo I bought for my previous boat.

            Tough to say, my 1st was a post but I had 0 space on the swim deck on that side, we managed just fine though. My second is on the rail, its alright but it likes to stain my fiberglass.

              I like the pedestal mount. I had one on my 265 as well, which did not have the extended swim platform. I like being able to get the grill away from the transom and away from everyone. Here is a pic of our current setup on our 305.

                Ryan- is there not a drip/catch pan on high priced mini grills?

                  I like that set up however, i have the mini swim platform, about 12-16"... thinkin an extended deck is in order. Wonder if one can retro-fit one on to my 1979?

                    The Magma Party Kettle Grill has been working great for us for many years. We use the rod holder mount. It cleans up well and still looks like new. No problem w/ dripping.

                      Here is a pic of where we mounted the post mounting plate on our 265. This did not have a deep platform either, and it worked out well. I would mount it so it faced the starboard side and it work out great.

                        There is, my kummo worked alot better at this. My magmas drip pan got warm and melted, pretty lame. It likes to drip now, its not so much of an issue, if we have greasy food we use tinfoil under it, works like a charm.

                          our BBQ grill has a stainless steel rod and it fits into one of our Scotty pole holder mounts.. its perfect and when done, stow it away under the engine room and put the pole holder back in and FISH ON

                            The Magma round Kettle was the absolute worst grill I've ever owned or used. Simply awful. I lived with it for a month or two, and put the damn thing on eBay. I replaced that with a Kuuma Force 10 grill in the medium size (145), that was excellent. I had that for many years and many miles. I replaced that eventually with an IR grill that I got for a steal, but still have the Force 10 in the garage and use it as a general portable grill for camping and stuff like that.

                            My current boat came with a Magma square grill. It's usable, but nowhere near as good as the Force 10. But it's really well installed and I haven't bothered to try to swap it out.

                            The Force 10 is half the price of a Magma, does a MUCH better job at everything, and has better mounts available. I would never choose a Magma again, and if I was forced to use the round piece of junk, I'd just go hungry.

                            Oh yeah, my marina neighbor has that POS. He's *always* comes to my boat and cooks instead of using his if I'm around.

                              I have a Magma Newport and like it. I also have mine on the swim step and I really like it there. If money was no object, which it is I would buy one of these bad boys. It's a Solaire

                              I find it strange that you feel the grill is too hot Ryan. I have had that issue.
