    Grilling at the dock?

    The other nite we were out with the anchor out and I was laying on the seat letting it rock me to sleep almost. We have that anchor drag alarm thing so I don't feel like I constantly have to be looking at shore points. Pretty nice. Pouring a cocktail is never an issue lol!

    You say that like it's happened in the past???? LOL! My husband would laugh at your comment. I spend my whole day in databases and spreadsheets and analyzing data. Any major purchases at home require a spreadsheet of options, perceived ROIs etc...... We can all thank my computer science type A brain for that

    Do you have precautions like a box of baking soda or anything?

    Solaire is the make. Can't remember if it's the anywhere or everywhere at the moment. Flat lid on top

    So far we've done hot dogs, shrimp, chicken breast and chicken and beef kabobs and it's all been good. Sear it up then turn down the heat. Instructions say not to close the lid which is weird to me but it works well so... Leaving in a few minutes and doing cheeseburgers tonite

    I'll have to check the marina agreement but I think it's silent on the issue and I know the insurance policy is silent on the issue tho I doubt they'd take kindly to it. I just assumed absolutely not then I started looking at other pictures.... knowing that just because someone did it, doesn't mean we should. The marina does provide charcoal grills at the top of the steps before going down to the water.

    What do you guys think about this. We have the platform infrared grill and are in a single slip. I initially thought "oh no way can we grill at the dock" but after seeing some other pictures floating around, I wonder if we're being overly cautious. Flame around gas fumes is obviously not cool but this is the infrared type so no big flame like a normal gas grill. We have a transom shower and a wetbar shower so plenty of options to put water on it. I've seen plenty of people smoking on the docks so it got me to wondering. Would you? I would be kind of cool when we're working on the boat to be able to eat right there if we wanted. What say you fine folks?

    Mercruiser Axius upgrade

    We were recently talking about this since we're using the anchor a lot more on the new boat vs the older boat. We don't have joysticks given the boat but..... If you have to leave the engine running, that's just burning gas for nothing. We were thinking it'd be neat if it was hooked up to an electric trolling motor that could handle this. And I guess on SkyHook, no one swimming in the water while it's on since the prop would come on and off.

    Can I put dye in holding tank?

    Nope, our wells shockingly don't have overly hard water (no softeners needed) and we never get the dreaded orange rings in the toilets at all. Since I can smell the faint smell of bleach from the hoses, my guess is I'm just overdoing it on my 1/4tsp per gallon so i'll cut it back

    I just worry about "sludge" forming in the lines and such. Sort of like a whirlpool tub that doesn't get used often and then blows crap out of the jets when you turn it on

    No water company here. Well water at home and even the spigot at the marina is well water (thank God, having been on well water my whole life "city" water is just gross to me). Sounds like I'm too heavy handed on the bleach. We added 5 gallons to top off the tank and didn't add bleach and after the nite out last nite - girl's nite on the boat uses more water with more flushing lol! - we'll be topping it off again so I won't add bleach and just keep an eye on it. thanks all!

    Possible. I feel like I read 1/4tsp per gallon but maybe that was just first fill of the season to shock it
