replacing solar vent
Yeah, another Nicro thread!
Just purchased this Cat 25. as you can see in the pic, the old Nicro vent cover had been snapped off and became a nice place for all manner of intrusion. I have a replacement vent unit but while the hole is the same size, the cover radius is wider. My intent is to remove the old fan unit, epoxy the previous screw holes and install the new vent using butyl tape.
1st question- is the overlap with the nonskid going to be an issue?
2nd question - having no history on how the original vent was installed, I'm assuming the worst and that they used 5200. what's the best way to go about removing without destroying the entire boat?
