Where are your fuel vents?

On the Coot, they are on the saloon sides. Note the two "holes" between the saloon window and engine-compartment air intake:

Walt, good to see your vents are well above waterline as well as avoiding high stern waves.

Walt, are those your engine room air vents or fuel tank vents?

Edit: OK, I just looked at the pic again in a larger format. The recessed fuel filler (?) looked like an ER vent. Now I see your tank vents.

On a repair running the tank vent fitting up inside a stanchon works well.

I didn't do a very good job of describing my fuel and waste tank vents. Here's a better depiction of where they are. Note that the water tank fill is in the cockpit where a fueling mistake (water in fuel tank?) is avoided. Also the hose runs, both fill and vent are the shortest possible.

Fuel Tank Vents

On INFINITY, (our N62) the vents are located STBD side-deck passage way, between steps. You can see 3 of the 5. Two are located under the next rung down. Well protected.
