Thanks Freesail99. I bought 2 solar vents at the Toronto boat show in January and paln to do exactly that. I keep my forward hatch open a crack (in the locked position) and keep a 120v fan running all the time when we are away from the boat. It still has a distinctive odour when we lift the companionway boards each weekend. Nothing nasty... just distinctive.
