    3870 , 3888 ,3460 , 3270, 3288 New Style Engine Room Vents

    The vents on my 3870 are not very attractive. In researching this I found a gentlemen that makes vents for 3870 series boats . The vents are CNC machined out of white PVC with Stainless steel rods. He is listing them on Ebay for $160 per vent. This was too high for my tastes, however after speaking with him the cost would come down to $80 per vent if we ordered 20 vents. Just checking to see if anyone else is interested in upgrading their vents. Total charge would be $320 for (4) vents plus shipping. I have attached the link so you can see what they look like. If 4 people are interested we could make this work.

    He doesn't ship them so how are you going to deal with a group buy like this?

      He won't ship individually but if we want twenty he will ship all of them- I would have to ship to each member.

      But I don't think many people are interested - at least so far.

        Hard to tell, but they look he same as the 32xx vent, only I'm guessing the 38xx uses qty 4 where the 32xx uses qty 2? if so, I'd be interested (in qty 2), and I'm sure others would be as well. Anyone know if they're the same?

          These Vents have the following measurements

          38 3/4" long

          7 1/4" tall

          3/4" thick

          I am told they fit the following models-

          3870, 3888, 3460, 3270, and 3288

          I would measure your existing Vents to verify. They do not come with mounting holes so you will have to make new ones.

                This will be a great deal if it comes together. Will all 20 be shipped to you and you would then ship then out to us or would they be shipped directly to us? I need 2 for my 3270.

                    Okay- Here's current status-

                    Me- (4)

                    Boatdaze (4)

                    Bravo454 (2)

                    Selah (4)

                    Nemisis (2)

                    We need to get (4) more sold. The guy that builds them would ship all twenty to me and I would ship to all of you from Michigan. I would only charge what the shipping is to your location and you could pick what shipper you want to use.

                    Stay tuned for further developments.

                      I'd be interested in 2 - but how to get them to Canada (Vancouver?) Would you be willing to use the post office to send them up?

                        I'm interested but will have to measure my existing to see if they are going to fit correctly. The ones I have currently are aluminum parallelograms.

                        Do the rods provide additional strength?

                        Thanks

                          Update-

                          The Vents would be shipped from the manufacturer- everyone pays the cost of shipping to their own location.

                          Once we have enough people interested to get to an order of twenty we would get the discounted price of $80 per vent. (Plus shipping)

                          This is for the PVC vent without the aluminum rods- The rods are only for looks and there is an extra charge for the rods.

                          The manufacturer is working to send me a link where everyone can place their order- I will post that when I receive it. I will also get the cost of adding the rods. If you are interested and want to be added to the list that is shown earlier in this thread let me know-

                          Thanks- Mike

                          Please be aware that once the complete order is in the manufacturer will not honor the price for later orders of 2 or 4 Vents. We are getting a discount for a bulk order.

                            I have attached an image of one of these vents mounted - This shows the vent with the optional aluminum rods included.

                            If you look where the mounting screws are you can tell that we would have to drill new mounting holes as the factory vent attachment screws are in different locations.
