Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] A couple questions


Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Good morning Jean Pierre,

I have the Magma Catalina Infra Red.
They recommend to attach with 2 supports, I used 3 (I can send you pictures if you wish).

I purchased a 10 lbs propane tank and regulator especially for it which I attached outside.
I also have a bag (attached on the rail) with several 1 lb propane) in case the 10 lbs tank goes empty.
I put a few more 1 lbs tank into the propane compartment.

I purchased it as I did not want to use the oven inside the galley and create more heat in an already hot climate.
All together I thought it was quite expensive, but I am happy of my purchased.

In my case (could be particular to the Infra Red version only - don't know) if windy, then it doesn't stay warm, so I have to block some of the air intake...
I don't know if Mark has the Infra Red or the other one.


Just as a side line. I flew aerobatic for 14 years, when I took passengers I made sure they ate (bread, bananas, etc.) on the way to the aiport.
Empty stomach will increase sea sickness. So make sure you have a full stomach. Liquid will be bouncing arround and not good.
I have never been see sick, but one day during my 106 class, the waves were getting bigger and the other 2 student got sea sick and I felt I was next.
So I went down and make myself a couple of sandwiches and I was fine.
If bad weather is expected I take Dramonime as prevention.

Let me know if you want pictures of the Grill set-up.

Sincerely, Alexandre

Pat,  We have a propane
Magma Grill and have used it (when anchored) in 20 knot
winds. We love it. We have had no problem keeping it
lit.  We both get seasick
and have found the best medication, with no side effects for
us, is Stugeron. Outside of the USA it is sold over the
counter. In the UK, it is commonly used to treat nausea for
pregnant women. My point being, it is quite safe to
take.  I use it sparingly.
I usually take some when I know we are going to get a blow
and due to it not having side effects, I have my wits about
me.Many sailors while
in the USA will order it from Canada. It is very
inexpensive.  http://www.canadadrugs.com/products/stugeron/15mg    Hope this
helps,    Best
regards,  Mark  SM2K

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] A couple
questions    We are preparing to sail down
to the Caribbean next month for the winter and want to ask a
couple questions . We are debating about taking along our
propane grill , its hard to keep lit in all but calm
conditions , we like to grill , but do not want to haul it
down if we can not use it , I do not want to deal with
charcoal. Has anyone a suggestion or success grilling in
windy conditions. Second , what is an effective seasickness
medication ?  Thanks, Pat SM#123
