It's my grill.
I have written about this before, but it needs some elaboration. A little, round, LPG powered device with a cooking surface smaller than a large pizza. In (today) 15 mph winds with gusts to 36. It has a wind shield (the cover can be rotated and propped so that it sits vertically, shielding it so that approximately half of the cooking area is actually available). The wind shield has to be set up in the direction the wind is blowing from. I have to stand on a cockpit seat to get to the grill, and the wind is at my back. This means I have to reach around the cover/heat shield and through the rail to place the food on the grill, as well as any turning/manipulation of the food that may be involved. Over the water, and between the grill and the dinghy on one side and the man overboard life buoy on the other.
And tonight, my bride requested barbeque sauce.
It's only a matter of time. Something is going in the water. I just hope I can grab the life buoy on the way down.
