sailingdog You're welcome.

BTW, here's a photo of a C&C 38, and on my friend's boat, which this is not, the engine compartment blower and intakes are located under the hump along the stern cockpit coaming that you can see through the wheel in this photo.

I was trying to imply is that the transom/stern is not a good place to cut a hole so large, as you see on allot of powerboats for instance.

Ball valve's on a blower? please explain...
