Re: Replacing my "engine room" blower?

If you have room at your transom, a good continuous duty flange mount blower, discharging 250 CFM, is the Jabsco 35760 Vent Blower with a rated service life of 5000 hours. Ours operates whenever the engine is running but we also have a separate switch and I run the blower for 20-30 minutes after we've shut the engine down to help keep the engine heat out of the accommodation, except during the winter months of course.

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."
