Re: Replacing my "engine room" blower?

Mounting anything on this "little" boat is a challenge. I have fabricated my share of mounts and made modification for almost every "upgrade" we have done, to this and to our other boats. If I didn't truly enjoy the process it might be considered a sign of dementia at my age.

I think I can fit a Jabsco 35760 Vent Blower at the aft end of the 1/4 birth, against (and through) the engine space bulkhead. Its cover will protrude up into the 1/4 birth space as a small "bump". It will be up higher than the one it replaces. Its cover can be insulated to deaden sound. The space it frees up will solve another problem. Another upgrade. Ha! Its like having a puzzle to play with!
