    3888 1993 Engine room vents-gctid346549

    Has anyone replaced the engine room vents on the port/stbd of the hull with new ones? I want to replace the existing 6x34 in. plastic vents with more modern style ones.

    Looking through jamesdistributors. com but they don't have any that size. I assume they have to remain that size for the combustion air ratio of the engine??? Let me know if anyone has a resource for ordering new style vents. Thanks!

    If you or a friend is a woodworker and has a few tools, these can be easily fabricated from starboard or similar plastic that is UV resistant. Cut them to size, mark the mounting screw holes then route the edges and use a table saw/router to cut the slots for air similar to the originals.

        We purchased vent from this place in LaConnor Washington. They made ours and he was great and not a bad price.. they have the molds for all boats made.. we didnt have to pre-drill new holes, and they made perfect ones for us since our old ones were damaged by the P.O.

            Props to boatventguy. He is a 3888 owner and a good guy to talk to. I have his vents on my boat. One bit of advice, don't use your old vents as a template for holes. Just get it lined up on your boat and drill new ones. BTW he actually lives in South Carolina.
