Re: Vetus Deck ventilator
Well, I ended up ordering the current production Vetus Athos ventilators. They are slightly smaller than the originals ( about 1/8" smaller in diameter ). The original trim ring will not fit the new version, so I will have to use the included one. It is just barely big enough in diameter to cover the hole in the headliner. I haven't installed them yet, but I expect to be able to fit the above deck portion into the existing cabin-top hole with only minor additional sealing.
It is humorous to me that Vetus would make the current version just a bit smaller so that it would not be a direct replacement to their previous production units.
I'll follow up after the installation. It won't be right away, as I have to carefully remove the teak dorade boxes, etc.
