I keep two blowers in my diesel engine compartment. One is a large "squirrel cage" dedicated to the operation of my generator to assure CO fumes don't collect,- another big issue. Over my propulsion engine I run a little plastic $25 exhaust fan. These plastic fans last about five years; therefore, I could use them for fifty years before the cost would match the price of the big "squirrel cage". Take care and joy, Aythya crew
