Galley Range Hood?

I would like to install a range hood in my galley I have room for a 4" flexible duct and a 5" wide chase above the stove. I found a flush range hood at an online retailer in au, has anyone found one in the us that is similar?

Where are you going to vent the 4"duct to?

perhpas you could make a stanchion that doubles as a duct for the range bu no way you'll want a four inch diameter sanchion. Would a dorade work? venting i tricky at best.

I have a center cockpit sloop with a large chase in the combing located directly above the stove.

I am removing a forced air heater that vents out the side of the combing and was thinking the empty hole left from the exhaust is right above the stove. what a great spot to locate a range hood vent.

the forced air heater is being replaced with a hydronic heater in a better location below decks. no more inefficent down draft system.

I am looking for ideas or products that will work for the install. I have looked at RV range hoods similar to what you would find in a house, but the exhaust location is in the wrong spot, either out the back or out the top in the back.

I don't want grease dripping from it so it needs to have a grease filter and needs to be made of a non corrosive metal or plastic.

I can always vent with a engine blower and a clamshell vent, but the grease filter and interior fitting is the dificult part.

thanks for any ideas you can offer

Joey

Even with a filter I'd be concerned with residual grease building up in the combing.

Putting in a duct all the way from the hood to the clamshell, that’s possible to remove, may a cleaner way.

Having the motor easily accessible for cleaning/replacing may be helpful.

As for the hood...I'd be thinking about building one...at the end of the day its little more than a holder for the filters...I'd probably start by finding some good quality filter/s of the proper size, then its just a matter of building a bracket with an enclosed top that the vent can be attached too.

If you could post some picture of the place you want to install it I may come up with a better solution.
