Whoops! Sorry chef2sail--I should know better.

Thanks for the info. Sounds like the Day/night vent is the way to go for our needs. We may actually have a wired fan as well for back-up since it's for the composting toilet, but that's another topic...

Two seperate installs.

Day/ night nicovent ( on sale) works with solor powering. Can be used as positive air or exhaust) is forward of the mast into my head on the port side. Plenty of spray over this area with never a drop inside. The newer model has an ajustable sleeve in the inside of sealing the unit.

Other install was a SS vetus Dorade with a mushroom vent inside if it. The is also forward of the mast....coachtop.....right into forward part of salon. Sits about 18 inches off the boat. Passive air and can be turned to help vent air, Usually facing forward as it will allow breeze down dorade when at anchor,

Key to ventilation is to have an in,,,and and out.,...everything cannot just go in...
