Post CUSTOM FIBERGLASS VENTS

Still here, just been lurking for a while!!!
I've gone back to what I do best, tooling & design. Very little boat repair work here lately and VERY boring so I've been doing some designs to update old style vents. The first styles will insert directly into existing vent cutouts, second styles will also fit the same cutout lengthwise and require very little cutting to accept the "teardrop" shape and the third design... well , you'll see it soon as I get a page up with photo's. Any suggestions as to what you would like to see ???? Gordo, give me a call and I'll send you a few samples. Cig , come by the shop and check these out and we can discuss your new hatch design!! By the way, you can still get AQUATECH SPEEDCOAT but the end of the year forced me to fold.
Steve


PS CIG, Need HELP with new page!!!

Audiofn,
Almost forgot, these vents are dual purpose, can be surface mounted or grind flange and bond for flush mount!!

NACA= National Advisory Commitee on Aeronautics

It was the predecessor to NASA

That type of duct was developed for use on planes for air intake with little disruption of airflow across the surface-very advantageous over 700 MPH Might come in handy on my new turbine powered paddle board

Hurry with the pictures. Sounds like what I need. Only have 4 months to get my stuff done. You say that they will fit in where my stock vents are? SWEET!
