Swimplatform MAGMA Grill installatio


Recommended Posts

2006 Chaparral Signature 276, wanting to install my new Catalina MAGMA grill on swimplatform. Is the swimplatform hollow? Bolt through is probably not an option. Sinking 1/4"x 1 1/2" screw bolts into platform will probably be the solution, but not certain. Can I just run these bolts--along with 5200--into the swimplatform? Installing the pedestal mount.

Bolt through is an option if you can reach from within the bilge (small person / hands).  I used screws/4200 and it has held very well for 4 years now.  Everyone will tell you through bolting is best (and they're right), but I simply couldn't reach deep enough.  I used to have photos on here until Photobucket did their thing.

Another option may be to install a rod holder (and Magma rod holder mount).  @Hatem has great threads on installing rod holders and they're a lot more accessible to the underside.
