In general I agree with Ski and others that it doesn't make enough difference as long a Jay's rule of thumb is met.


Indeed do not do what the PO of my boat did once... looking at the hull vents he had a sudden “bright” idea... why no to reverse them, being mouth open directly to the air flow will make more air coming in... until the first storm when he realized he was taking water in from rain and waves...
