    Added Large High Flow Blower to Generator Area

    I have added a continuous duty high flow 12 volt blower to my generator compartment. This helps to prevent The Gen set from vapor locking. It will also allow the area to get more dry fresh air to prevent corrosion. This thing really moves some air.

    Added Sound Proofing to 330 Express Generator Space

    I added some 1/2” sound absorbing foam to the 2 hatch panels for the Gen space. It definitely quieted things down a bit. I’m going to build a Dorade box behind the 2 vents for the compartment. A lot of noise is coming from those vents.
