I'll send you a picture if I go that route.

May follow Bill's advice and go with a single burner gimballed cooker. May just buy a high-pressure propane burner head, bend some sheet metal around it for wind protection, and design a compass-style gimbal for it.

Plenty of ideas to play with, anyhow.

Thanks. There is another thread on CF with a bunch of pics. Search Weber grills.

Re: Necessary to design gimbal for Magma kettle grill?

I am on my second Magma (corrosion got to my first one after 9 years - hopefully it is a good charcoal grill for someone now) and I have never seen a gimbal arrangement. The parts and anything cooking could easily go flying IMHO. There are times when I'd like to use it underway but for the most part I only use it in very settled conditions, mostly at anchor.

My new grill starts easily with starter button but I am sure that won't last but a few years. High winds have extinguished mine a few times but not enough to abandon. When it happens getting it lit again via grill lighter can be tough but I have always cooked through it.

I went from a square magma to a weber Q. For the mount I cut a peice of starboard into a rectangle slightly larger than the footprint of the Weber. Then used some 1/4 inch machine bolts to attach the Q to the starboard. Then bolted the magma gimbal rail mount to the starboard.
