No heat exhaust (air) hosing in engine compartment

It seems that the YANMAR 3GMD that someone prior to my ownership, gets a little too warm in the enclosed engine compartment of my Island Packet 32' 1991. (

It used to have fresh water cooled engine; but now it is raw water cooled.

Is it a good idea to put in some air exhaust hosing back thru the bilge and
out the back stern.

A mechanic said, if it has run fine this long, and the boat is 24 years old, it is probably no problem.

Mechanic makes a good point. That said, I have exhaust hose and a blower in mine. I hardly ever turn it on, but occasionally in Florida during very hot days I have switched it on and noted a definite effect. Kept it noticeably cooler below and gave me a bit of peace of mind keeping the engine compartment cooler.

I say what can it hurt to run some hose and maybe stick a blower in line.

Good point. I know Island Packet is made right up in Tampa, Fl. But, I think it is better to have a cooler galley, and the peace of knowing she runs cooler.
Do you have the in-line 3 inch hose blower in the hoses?
