Helm Fresh Air Duct 2001 SSLXi


Recommended Posts

Where does it go to? Is it like the observers duct that runs down to the channel to the bilge? If so, where? Is the end of the ducting just stuffed in the hole with the control cables and such?

I've searched the forum, but can't find anything, sorry for such a basic question.

Can someone post a picture of where the ducts go on both sides on a v drive? Mine need replacing as well, and i'm not sure where they're supposed to end. Thanks.

Well, the port side runs underneath the gunnels all the way down the side to the stern and then along the transom to the engine compartment, and then down and forward a bit into the engine compartment fan.

The starboard side just ran underneath the gunnels back to about the rear seat lean back and then just stopped. I've often wondered about just pulling that whole thing on that side because I could really use the room to run cables more easily.

The ram air hose on drivers side drops into the stringer area under the floor and is vented out the stringer into the engine area under the hood on the SSLXI. Llo for the grill on the inside of the stringer near the mufflers.

The inlet ducts at the base of the windshield are the fresh air intakes for the engine compartment. Serves two purposes actually, intake air for the engine and fresh air intake for the blower. This applies particularly for the boats that don't have the corner transom vents.
