    The vents per each hold, which are 60" diameter and 10 feet long are 4" diameter each.

    60" is that correct 60 inches = 1.524m in diameter vent into each void?

    The vents

    The vented spaces are 60" diameter and have bulkheads every 10 feet. They each have two opposite facing funnels at each end. The funnel diameters are 4" One funnel in each compartment has a ventilation fan fitted.

    Ok...so...the vent pipe dimater....is 4"...circa 100mm diameter.
    If you have a fan in each void, with a vent at either end, this should suffice.

    The only issue will be the constant change in humidity. Can the fans cope with the change to prevent condensation....I suspect so.

    Sounds good

    but please post some pics of the vent arrangements for a better opinion

    in and out and distances apart and fan setups

    to insulate those hulls now is going to be a very difficult job

    The Sebastian Marie is Complete

    At long last, the Sebastian Marie is finished and ready to go to the water. It must be disassembled for the journey to the launch location about 12 miles away. We are building wheel assemblies now to facilitate this.

    OK, I guess I have pretty good timing (occasionally...); I wandered back into the forum just in time to catch this update. Nice to know you kept at it; I'll be checking back for pic's of the splash.
