Replacing my "engine room" blower?

I have a squirrel cage blower mounted in the space under the 1/4 birth separated from the engine space by a plywood bulkhead. It uses two holes in that bulkhead for the hoses that take in air from the engine space and discharge it into a hose that reaches all the way to the stern rail vent.

I would like to change this setup. I have a better use for the space the current blower occupies. I would prefer an inline blower mounted aft of the engine space.

Does anyone have any experience with inline blowers? Any reasons for not making this change?
