New fiberglass boats smell because of the styrene and other chemicals outgassing from the laminate and materials on the boat. Old boats usually smell because of mold, mildew, leaky bilges, permeated head hoses, dead animals in the boat, etc.
The solar vents help keep the boat from getting mold and mildew... and help keep the air in the boat fresh.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
