Solar Vents - best out there?

25 years ago, I installed 3 NICRO Solar Vents on my boat. This year, two are working perfectly, one isn't. I went to West Marine online and discovered a series of complaints in the reviews, by buyers who had bought excellent NICRO Vents in the past claiming that the new generation is complete junk! Does anyone have any advice for alternatives? Efficient and enduring?

Thank you!
Mick Mallon.

Howdy Mick!

Welcome aboard CF!

These vents were recently discussed in a thread about hatches.

Here is a quick Google Custom search of CF to help you.

Nicro - Google Search

If given a choice, I would rather have Dorades with big cowls.
