Diesel engine blower?

I'm thinking of installing one of those small in-line blowers to exhaust the heated air from my diesel engine compartment. I could attach it to a ventilation hose that leads aft. I believe it will help on those hot summer nights, and should keep the air fresh in the aft berth.

Is this a good idea? If so, should I run it continuously when the engine's running, or should I put it on a switch and turn the blower on after running the engine?
