The ones who fail to grasp that are cheap, not low-buck.

There's a big difference.

Very true. And that is what a lot of non-low-buck guys and gals fail to grasp.

I'd be interested to see how it does. I imagine electronics on an outboard live a rough life (sun, water, vibration...).

Is $30 still a low buck project? If so, I've just added this multifunction display Runleader RL-HM028 (hour meter, tachometer, voltmeter) onto our new outboard motor. So now I know, what is the RPM and runtime hours. No drilling was required!

more info on my blog.

My wood stove's chimney was dangerous hot so I enclosed it in an outer pipe. Open at the top (deck head) and a cute bit of sheet metal behind the stove brought the other end to the bilge where the computer fan sucked the hot into the head. Even without the fan the natural circulation was much improved

That's cool... cheap, more efficient, and won't burn your boat up.

In combination with the fan you can see in the photo it adds about 10 degrees or more to the ambient temperature. The temp at the stovetop is 170F degrees and at the deck ring its 90F. I didn't have a temperature probe before I installed the fins so I don't have an accurate comparison. From the pain of near contact, the stove pipe was far hotter then 90F before the fins were in place.
