Engine room blower exhaust

This is the fitting mounted on the bulkhead. I can't think of a reason why I would want it to exhaust into the lazarette specially since the refrigeration compressor is right under it. Anyone know where I can get a cap to seal it? 3.25" OD.

Ah, finally a function for those "Beanie Babies" that were such a craze in the 90's! I think a pair of "Beanie Baby" hostages or a Nerf ball bound in duct tape would make a fine plug, but it does look like PVC. You could probably find a plug on the shelf of PVC fittings. Take care and joy, Aythya crew
