Re: Deep Fryer Instalation

I would like to thank most of you for your helpful tips, I do believe however some of your replies were making light of my quest for knowledge. I may not have any sailing experience but I consider myself an expert in fried foods. I have 6 yrs experience managing a very busy KFC and I can tell you that proper fryer installation and safety is no laughing matter. I have numerous deep tissue burns to my hands and nether regions from my days as a lowly fry cook that have instilled in me a safety first attitude. I have included a photo of a fryer similar to mine if anyone has any helpful installation tips.

Re: Deep Fryer Instalation

Nice machine. Personally though, I prefer my dong un-fanged.

Re: Deep Fryer Instalation

While you're at it throw in a sun tanning bed and a sauna or two. Both will make for a much nicer and meaningful boating experience.

Re: Deep Fryer Instalation

So I'm planning to install a wood fired pizza oven, yum...

Any issues using the mast as a flue?

For real fun, put swivel-caster wheels on the legs.

Nothing better than chimichangas at sea. You do also have a bag of bowling balls?

Re: Deep Fryer Instalation

Wise guys! You know the rules, no talk of anchors or guns. It just starts trouble.
Besides which, that anchor is too small, it's the wrong kind and where is the chain?

Now I think the majority of men on this forum are in favor of fried foods, we just haven't figured out how to (1) get our wife's permission (2) how to keep the oil in the fryer in a gale or even at anchor.

Didn't Colonel Sanders use pressure fryers with tight lids? How about a gimbal for the Dong Fang ?

Ok, but how will it hold up to boardings by Somali pirates?

Re: Deep Fryer Instalation

They used to pour boiling oil over the parapets of the castles to repel invaders so maybe it is a great tool for repelling pirates.

Re: Deep Fryer Instalation

deep fat fryers are best installed on steel boats and can be welded directly to the hull,if you cant gimbal the unit,then you will need to fit baffels to stop the oil sloshing around.

you will also need some sort of air extractor.

if you don't have lots of ac power,then propane burners at bilge level will be your best option, be sure to fit gas detectors.

here in the UK we fry everything,as it saves LOTS of washing up!

deep fat fryers are ideal for boats in cold climates as it will keep the whole boat toasty warm even in the coldest of climates.

another hidden benefit is that your interior varnish will last for years,once it gets a good layer of accumulated chip fat.

I will include the recipe for beer batter,as it is simple to make and will greatly improve fish fillets deep fried.

plain white flour,lager type beer,salt,mix to a thick,but slightly runny consistency.
dip fillets in plain flour first then either side in the batter mix.
fry for 4-6 minutes depending on fillet thickness.

another delicacy we have here in the UK is "deep fried Mars bars"....very nutricious.

have you thought where you are going to put the burger grill plate,no galley is complete without one

Re: Deep Fryer Installation

Floater81,

Personally I think that if you're already having trouble getting around the galley and into the cockpit, it might be a wise idea to consider downgrading to a smaller fryer? That would give you several advantages:

1 - You would have more room to move around.
2 - You could use shorter screws through the hull, perhaps even short enough to not stick through, and then you could patch up the holes from the outside using sikaflex.
3 - You could make smaller portions (ergo less calories), which might also help you get around the boat more efficiently (ergo burning more calories).

be sure to post the pics when you've finished.
