SchoonerMISTRESS Thanks all, I'll check on it through Port Supply. Had 5, killed 1, and am often annoyed by one other. Skip says the Hella fans are good.
Thanks again,

billangiep Mistress, Another option for fans... I bought several of these and mounted them to teak winch pads then glued non skid to the bottom. I found mine in Home Depot in the lighting dept. for less than $20.00

tenuki the sound of my wallet leaving my back pocket.

SchoonerMISTRESS I hate the sound of fans. Its hot, you want the fan on but you know it is going to make that obnoxious sound that permeates through your head until you feel like you will go crazy. You begin to question which is more important, your sanity or being cool.
Why can't they make a quieter fan for boats?
If anyone knows of a good fan that doesn't sound so freaking loud, please let me know.

"Hello, this is the night watchman at the marina, I think you'd better come down here, your boat appears to be sinking"

I hate that sound.
