Thumbs Up for Nicro Vents

Had an old 3" Nicro Vent that came with my boat. I needed it to be exhaust rather than intake because I was using it in the head. I emailed them to see if i could buy an exhaust propellor...They sent me 2 of them...free!

Re: Thumbs Up for Nicro Vents

Little trick I do with 4" solar powered Nicros. They fit nicely into a 4" pvc coupling, which fits nicely over the male threaded mount for my Cheoy Lee cowl vents on the dorade boxes. Tie down to handrails F&A with 1/8" braided line. Neat, easy to remove ventilation.

This is a great tip

Was wondering how to provide skeeterfree (apologies to Zeehag) ventilation during summer. I have 6 Dorads and this will be great on those sultry summer evenings in Oz
