I have been wanting to put in a nicro vent for awhile, and this was my stop-gap measure while I figure it out. I have a good place to put one vent, but you need both in and out vents to make it work right. I do not have a really good place to put a second vent - unless I remove a redundant bulkhead compass (shown in the upper left of my profile pic) and replace it with a cowl vent. But this stopgap measure may be better anyway. My bilge has always been bone dry, but I have an outboard, so no packing gland to worry about.
