    I was at the scrap yard today, and spied a stainless beer keg, for 35 cents a pound. Told the guy I wanted to make a cooker out of it for my boat. He said "Don't bother, come to my house and get one I already have made up." He said someone brought it to the scrap yard and he bought it and took it home. It's never been cooked in! It needs a little tweaking, but is solid stainless with a new gas burner. All I have to do is cut off the stand it's on and put a pedestal on it to go on the front of my boat. I have been wanting to get me a cooker on board. It can double as a heater on frigid days!

    BTW: The best part about the deal was TWENTY bucks for it! No, Ronnie, it won't be mounted by this weekend as I will be on the tractor all week. (until Friday) :) Tailboating? I like that... but then, it would have to be mounted to the stern to be a true tailboater! Then Mark's kaboom theory might come into play, being as the fuel tanks are in the rear.!! That would technically be "aftgating", which might not be wise. I'll stick to "foregating". :wink:

    Not only the boat fuel tanks but that propane tank.
    If you got a propane leak at the tank she is going to lay inside that hull just like pump gas fumes.

    An open flame on a pontoon boat has never concerned me much but cooking in a hull has. Be careful.
    I'd note where my hull vents and fuel tank vents are.

    Good advice, and I thank you. I will sit the tank on the casting deck when cooking. BTW: I could easily remove the burner and convert it to charcoal. As with everything I have, it's a work in progress. :smile2: Also, I have no hull vents or enclosed areas. It's an open skiff.

    You are a nut!!!:crazy:
    One other thing that is worth mentioning here. Using propane heaters in closed spaces is not smart! The carbondioxide created when using such devices can build up to toxic levels if not vented properly. Carbondioxide is odorless, tasteless and invisible. You would doze off to sleep and never wake up! Bill...........BE CAREFUL!!!:wink:

    This always happens to me when I am trying to play online at work, when I should be working at work. Atleast my mistake is here instead of with a patient!:crazy::embarassed: I should have posted Carbon Monoxide not Carbon Dioxide. There is a huge difference, sorry!!:embarassed: Here is a link to more information concerning the dangers of using heaters the wrong way. Just want to make sure the facts are straight so no one looses ann eye or something!:wink: Carbon Dioxide

    LOL!! I did not fall off the cabbage truck yesterday, and know all about carbon monoxide!! :smile2: Keep in mind that this little cooker is PORTABLE, and will only be used when camping on a sandbar, or a several day wildcat venture on the water. It won't even be on the boat but occasionally. I promise NOT to blow myself up, NOT to get carbon monoxide poisoning, NOR take up any valuable fishin' space on the Blunt. I sincerely appreciate all the concern for my safety! :cool2: Now, let's go fishin' and have a steak!! :wink:

    Ugh, man, I don't see how you eat those things cold. :smile2: Yeah, a nice, rare, steak would have been good on the nights we were out. It'd have to be well done for Dad though.

    Cookin on a sand bar is good, not in a boat that could rock.

    Tried it. Thought I was out of the way, in a protected area, and here comes somebody's wake.
