Deep Fryer Installation

Well I finally bought a sailboat. its been in my back yard a couple weeks now, I've just been scratching my head on the best way to install my deep fryer. First I used some deck screws but they poked through to the outside so thats not gonna work. I finally found some strong construction adhesive that seems to do the trick. Has anyone tried this method before? I'm a rather heavy set man so getting in and out of the cabin has been very challenging to say the least, I think when I finally get the boat in the water I'll just leave the sails up all the time. well I know summer is just ending but I can't wait for spring!!!

Re: deep fryer instalation

I would just use more deck screws. You will need to be ready in the spring to start your circumnavigation. (non stop of course...on a sunfish...)

Re: deep fryer instalation

Nah, use nails, long ones so you can bend the ends over. Helps them hold good.

Re: deep fryer instalation

Screws poking through the hull will be no problem as long as you keep the boat in your back yard.

How long is the extension cord on your deep fat fryer?

Re: deep fryer instalation

man you must just be a little slow, what you need is one of those propane powered deep fry turkey units that you mount in the cockpit next to the grill and slow cooker

Re: deep fryer instalation

What a terrific idea!! You'll need a big genset to run that fryer. Nothing better than flaming hot oil sloshing around.

Re: Deep Fryer Instalation

What sort of sailing are you intending? Deep Fat Frying on any cruiser is an accident waiting to happen! There are much healthier ways to cook while afloat - leave the deep fat fryer for land lubbers.

Re: Deep Fryer Instalation

Riiight, make sure you get the special baffled model deep fat fryer with a sallyport access lid.
Suggest you fasten it directly to the propane tank with a thick coat of contact adhesive. Best location is probably on top of the fuel tank, nice flat surface, good heat dissipation, easy to drive the mount deck screws into too.
Be sure to post some pictures too, before you fire it up...

Re: Deep Fryer Instalation

Just swivel it, like the stove.
Now there is an idea, just rip out the stove, anything you can cook, you can deep fry

Re: Deep Fryer Instalation

Brilliant! After frying up a heap of fresh seafood (bought to you by grateful natives in every port) you can plumb the grease trap directly to the diesel tank. Thereafter in the event the constantly set sail fails to fill the engine can burp the scent of fish and chips over the phosphorescence of your wake.
A cunning plan sir, I doff my hat.

Re: Deep Fryer Instalation

Why not simply hang it from the saloon roof with some rubber bungy cord?
