Brilliant idea for ventilation down below - the boat pioneered it then, and she is still going strong - wow!

From Wikipedia:

Origin

The first appearance of Dorade boxes was on the Olin Stephens-designed Dorade, a yacht built in 1929 for ocean racing.[1] As originally built, the Dorade's vents led directly below, but this was found to allow water below, and the vents were modified in the early 1930s.
