A big issue with low external vents is if you broach crossing a bar or with big following seas. Here's a story for you to look at
69.1 degrees | MV Dirona

I'd be very nervous of using the current cut-outs you have.

Thanks for the link mate. 69 deg in a Nordy..! Would love to have seen a pic of that.

That's a savage sea in poor weather. Not sure I'll ever be in that situation; well I hope not anyway.

Matt, I can see there is a concern there. By the way, what capacity is your engine again..? Also what revs are you going to be cruising at..? I doubt it is going to be a planing proposition, so the vents don't have to be quite that big. FWIW, my 120hp Lehman is easily served by 4 vents which take the form of a rectangular tube arrangement about 10 x 6cm aperture, that comes up from the ER through into the saloon, but hidden in cupboards or under built in seating, and open out on the outside of the saloon walls about each corner, (more or less), and covered with vents that prevent incidental rain and splashes going down. Is it possible you could rig up something along those lines. That is, PVC type tubes or similar (rectangular or square rather than round), passing up from the ER in places where you could turn them with a right angle to vent, (or actually suck), through a covered vent in the low saloon wall..?

I'm going down to the boat tomorrow - having another attempt to repair of the fridge, with the help of a fridgy. I will take a few shots to demonstrate, but I think a guy with your skills has already picked up on what I'm trying to describe.

PS. I can understand it would break your heart a bit to cover those vents you made, as they are, as with everything else, beautifully done - works of bloody art mate - but if you saved the cut-outs, you could epoxy them back in, and no-one need ever know. Our lips are sealed...right guys..?

Matt, My vents come through the floor directly into the rail and vent to the inside. Kinda like that picture of the head boat.

Matt - Don't know if images I copied off net will come out here... but some links probably will. I see ways you could place reverse facing vent apparatus onto where you cut out wherein the length of vent cowl that extends past your cut holes so far past the holes that even with broadside waves there would be little to no water entry; easy for bilge pump to handle. Also, as a side note: I don't know when engine room vents on hull sides became the "in-thing" for boats... but... way back when the engine vents were forward and reverse cowls on side decks with hose that extended to engine room. Chris Craft woodies were famous for their topside vents that were usually right against the superstructure on side decks. That made it near impossible for water entry; unless of course a boat was going blub, blub do to some other cause.

Check out the two red things on the flying bridge of the Rhino in the pictures in "My Albums". A little late now but just another approach.

How about patching them with thick Lexan cut to fit the cutout area, then you would have natural light below.

Matt me mate... I shed a tear for your having to take s couple steps back on this one... but... a whole lot less tears than if you went blub, blub with your artistic boat in the future due to a simple misjudgment regarding ER vent placements!


You're a champ!

Yeah I might just do that mate. Could add some LEDs around them for that added look at night. Great idea mate. Thanks..!

I have notice she is tall and slender. Hopefully it is as advantageous in a boat as it is a woman :-/

Now, that could be a brilliant idea, which might make Matt feel less dejected, and make those beautiful cut-outs really functional. He could even say it was "the plan" all along. Our lips are still sealed aren't that..? Many fancy high-end boats have ocean-safe clear inserts in the hull sides to let in light and to even look through. In his case he put them in to lighten the ER - perfect..!

Greetings,
Mr. H. As per usual, impressive is much too "weak" a word. I hesitate to bring this up but what came to mind when viewing the "svelte" picture (#6) is the amount of filler you're applying above the water line. Given you're sanding quite a bit of it off to achieve perfection, have you calculated how much weight the filler is adding to the upper half of the hull? Will she be top heavy is the question, I suppose?

I second that concern for you and your baby.
