It's simple to design - just one more of the same b!ower and ductwork used to ventilate the engine
Highly recommended feature.
I design too, but not for boat...factory in fact.
For boat designed fro more crews....cooking would be sure more intensed.
One more feature, that boat rarely have which I think is usefull too:
That is the provision to install an air-con, space for in and out door unit, power supply(on/off shore) and drainage, should be incooperated during design stage.
I never know about boat and never own one....still in my dream.
