Some of the Nicro vents used a bronze deck ring and screwed into the ring. These came with a bronze deck plate that allowed you to seal the hole if the boat was going offshore. These vents were pretty expensive and not too common.

The rest of the Nicro vents used a deck fitting that looked like a piece of PVC pipe, and just snapped into place. There were no screws holding them in....just a ridge in their collar that fit into a groove on the deck ring. If you pull on these or push on them from the inside, they should just pop out.

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.
