I have one through-deck air vent leaking. Occluding the opening with duct tape has temporarily solved the problem of drips onto the forward saloon seat but how to cure the problem long term? I would prefer a Dorade substitute but like to remove the cockpit/ deckhouse roof and position this on deck over the vent so a Dorade would probably preclude that arrangement. The vent has a vertical tube sealed where it passes through the deck, and a canopy covering tube and baffles. The canopy or roof seems glued to the deck. Anybody dismantled one of these things? Anybody have experience of alternatives?

Adrian.

I have exactly the same question as Adrian above. I presume they are adhesived onto the deck and need cutting free and then rebounding with marine sealant. No sign of any screws accessible from above or below. Any useful info from other owners please respond. Cheers Duncan
