Comments:  
The aft leaning post rigging boots on some boats may not be properly sealed. In a worst-case scenario, if there is a fuel leak in the bilge and the grill is in use, and the GFCI should trip, the gases in this compartment could be ignited resulting in a thermal event.AFFECTED HIN RANGE - 420OR MODEL YEAR 2016: HULL 116 TO 131; 420OR MY 2017: HULL 100 TO 122.042617 - CUR1: 8 UC.
