Barbeques and Ribs

I've noticed some vessels with rails occasionally sport barbeques attached to their rails.

Are there any barbeques which can be used on RIBS, perhaps which could somehow attach to the tubes?

I'm sure with a bit of ingenuity something like this could be used.

This isn't such a silly question! We had the same problem this summer on the evening of the IOW festival. The plan was to use a disposable bbq on a metal camping kitchen thing. In the end we decided it was a bad idea, so Rich and my self ended up swimming to the shore and having it there, then swimming the food back in dry bags! The trouble with the bbq that goes on a rail like on a yacht is that you need a rail right on the edge of the boat. The only suitable rail I have is the A-frame, which I think would be too far back really to have a bbq on. Pete7 did have a bbq on his boat that evening, but I'm not sure how he did it....

I suppose if you could find some sort of fireproof box you would be ok. Maybe a square terracota plant try thing with a piece of wood under it.

Pac 22s run on diesel.

Personally I wouldn't put a naked flame anywhere near anything with a big petrol tank and a breather.

We've got a Magma. Its gas but you can get a conventional one too. Its well made and hasn't rusted at all. We got it from here:

The rod holder mounting bracket could work okay on a RIB.

I did think about making one mounted from the A frame over the water with a stainless guard shaped over the tube just to be sure, but we normally go to the beach less chance of spilling the beer
