When clearing out the crap from my boat I discovered a small blower attached to a short 1x6 with angled ends, as though it was meant to wedge into the hull near the stern. Also, the forward wall of the lazarette box is short of the underside of the deck by about 6 inches. Could this have been an ER exhaust fan? Would it make sense to hardwire a blower to the engine ignition, or this that just asking for problems down the road? What type of ER ventilation do others have? I installed a Lewmar hatch - would leaving that open be enough?

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
