    IMG_0417.JPG IMG_E0448.JPG IMG_E0449.JPG One thing we struggled with on our 270 was grill storage. With twin 4.3s and a genny we didn’t have enough space in the engine bay. So we had to store our grill in the cabin which took up a lot of room and made the cabin smell like a grill.
    So we bought a Blackstone 17” griddle which takes up a lot less room when in its bag and I made a new table storage compartment to replace the original one. This one still holds the cockpit table if need be (we never store it down there) but it also stores the folding transom grill table I made last year along with the Blackstone.
    Also, the original table storage wall was fastened in place with twelve screws into 2 boards which were held in place with 4 more screws which made it a royal PITA to take out to get to the genny. This one is held in place with 4 wire lock pins and can be removed without any tools in a matter of minutes.

    Nice, I like that you were able to build that customer storage cabinet, looks good.

    I keep my grill in the cockpit during trailering then once we get on the water I install it in it's holder. I have rod holders installed on my gunwales and use a rod holder grill mount for it.

    That guy right there. Which I actually bought it as another brand but my new grill is a KUUMA actually. We don't always bring the grill so sometimes I just leave it at the storage facility.

    Here's the folding grill table that I made


    We were using a Char-Broil Grill2Go, which worked great, but it just takes up too much space. 36379019_10213241245359039_5577193068840353792_n.jpg IMG_2961.JPG

    That's a nice big table, that's probably useful for more than just grilling. Looks like you made it of wood and painted? Also assume you added those cup holders to the original table? Good idea, that table is worthless for putting drinks on, lol. They really whiffed on the cupholder portion of our boat.

    It does come in handy. It's made from PVC panel purchased at Home Depot. I did add the cup holders to the table. I also added nylon spacers so that the table sets level. You can see where I also added a fold-down stainless cup holder above where the cooler is sitting in the video.
