Re: Magma BBQ Grill

Joe Hanson
 

Thank you all for the replies.    I had not thought to look at the rod holder or building an extender.     Excellent ideas.

 

On my stern railing I have the outboard motor mount (starboard) and GPS antenna’s (port and starboard)….

 

Clearly doable.

 

Thanks,

Here's something I did that worked out well and was easy to do.  

I mounted the grill as far back as I could off the stern rails so I would maintain as much cockpit space and wouldn't drip grease on my seats.  And I made a support strut using bimini connector fittings.  

It came out really solid.  I also have the Magma - Serving Shelf that I set utensils on.  It stores nicely in the propane tank compartment when not in use.

Joe,

We mounted ours to the stern rail with magma mounts.  It seems to work well and is out of the way.  I remove the cushion below when grilling and then I have a place to set a tray and anything I need for cooking.

Here's our setup.  It's a very poor picture, but the only one that shows our mounting.

The base mounts on the flat area just to the side of the port, aft locker.  The hoist actually goes through the seat (there's a hole cut for it), then has an upper attachment on the upper rail.  It can swivel to get to the engine mounting location next to it.

Hi

 

I installed a stainless outfitters motor hoist on the starboard side.  I don’t know how different this is from the Garhauer, but it works well.  Attached is a picture.  Note that I also added a structural support to the rail for added strength.

ISO spare dinette filler cushion in dark blue

Jonathan Walker
 

Greetings!

I have a MKII with the dark blue interior with pattern and have found that this fabric is no longer available. I have spoken with both JSI in St Pete who made my boats cushions and also Hilario who does most of Catalina's cushions. Neither can get the fabric.

Before ordering a dinette filler cushion to convert the main salon's table into a sleeping unit in a non matching fabric, I thought I would check to see if any of the members here had a spare or one they have no intention of using. Color would be flexible but I would really like the matching fabric.


Attached is the fabric color/pattern on top of the dinette table I am looking for the filler for.

Thanks for reading!

I know very little about these systems. As others have suggested, cleaning the terminals might be a good place to start. A bad cooling fan can also cause the compressor to fail to start.  My boat broker helps me with my refer systems and  showed me how to do some of the basics.

You can get it from any auto parts store, Walmart. You may also need to get an adapter for the Schrader valve for R134. It would also be helpful to have a gauges. If there is no pressure in the system it is best to put a vacuum pump on it to remove moisture. Turn off compressor before hooking hoses to the compressor. Purge the air out of the line. Add freon slowly, short burst and wait a bit before adding more. When the evaporator plate start to cool slow down adding freon. Give the plate time to cool so that to much freon doesn't get added. Check all fittings for leaks when the system has a charge. 

 

This is the cliff notes version of how to do this.

I had the same toggling issue you reported with your refrigerator system.  Mine issue was due to too low of a level of refrigerant.  It was an easy fix once I obtained the right brass adapter to attach to the vertical charge port tube located on the Adler /Barbour unit.  Add small amounts of R143A refrigerant at a time and then let the unit run for an hour to see if it is enough to get the cooling process started.  Go slow and do not overcharge the system as this leads to other issues. Make sure to use only refrigerants that do not contain sealants or other additives. 

Good luck with it,

C400/445 Colleagues:

 

The compressor on my WAECO Adler/Barbour Refrigeration System aboard SILVER EAGLE (2002 Catalina 400 Mark II) toggles on and off by itself every 5-10 seconds or so. Then, it stops for a while, then repeats. The refrigerator box is not cold. The ice in the freezer has melted. I have electricity to the compressor. So, I don't think that it's a switch or fuse problem. This just occurred. The system is 20 years old with no prior problems.

 

...any thoughts or suggestions?

 

Does anyone know of any WAECO Adler/Barbour service/repair facilities on the northern Chesapeake Bay?
