Venting Cabinets

Cabinet doors on this boat are all solid with the exception of air-conditioning access and ice maker. There was not ventilation inside any of the cabinets. This photo shows three 2 1/4" holes drilled in the panel that separates one cabinet from another.
Starting with port aft cabinet that butts to the former air conditioning cabinet, I drilled holes in each partition, going around forward, to starboard and then aft, ending in the starboard locker. Now a teak vent will be placed in the bottom of locker. The full circle will now allow air flow. Flow is important!

Air Flow in Cabinets

Fresh Air

This hose is being pulled through the Master Stateroom head and into the VIP Stateroom and will replenish the room with fresh air. Stale air is not appealing to us. Air supplied by the Munter vents on the bridge will be pulled into a collector box with a fan and then pushed into the Master and VIP area via this hose. A fan to evacuate air will also be installed in both rooms. The Airpax E-Plex system will have timers set up to run these fans to replenish about 10% of the air in these rooms at appropriate intervals.
