Dorade Boxes

Recently found a pair of nice looking cowl vents. Need to build some Dorade boxes. Fairly confident that I can get them done/installed over the Winter. However was wondering if anyone new of a good article/plans that I might uses as a reference.

Love this forum. Much thanks for any advice.

Re: Dorade Boxes

Are you going to use wood or fiberglass?

This Old Boat by Don Casey has a pretty good diagram (Plan) of how they are put together. Page 207 in the 1991 edition.

Re: Dorade Boxes

The "This Old Boat" diagram doesn't show the on the boat portion but just the box construction. GordMay gave you a link to what would include the on the boat portion as well.

Re: Dorade Boxes

I believe that Feranc Mattes book," From A Bare Hull" has some good diagrams. Good luck with it. ____Grant.
