Re: Solar Ventilation

Here’s what I have done on two of my boats. I use 12v computer muffin fans connected to a solar panel. They come in all different sizes and CFMs. They will typically move much more air than the nicro style. I have a small 23 ft sailboat with one blowing out over the vberth and one circulating in the sail lockers. They draw very little amps and keep my boat fresh. Since they only work during the day, they do not draw in the moist evening air. Yes, you will have to do some diy wiring, etc but for the price and performance I am pleased.
