    Anyone know who made the cowl vents for the 37C? I am assuming mine are original and I finally lost one overboard this past weekend. I knew it would happen eventually and it did. They really need crash bars or some other protection from the staysail sheet...
    Mine look like what is available out there but the ones i found are "male" so the get inserted into the deck plate. On my 37C they are "female", they slip over the deck plate fitting, and that is 3 1/4" outer diameter, so the the vents have a 3 1/4" inner diameter.
    Any help would be appreciated!

    On the later models (post 1982) there was a 'crash bar' over top of the dorades (cowl vents). On mine the cowl vents are male. I have never seen the female version. Often when you buy cowl vents they are supplied with the deck ring and blanking cap, so maybe not an issue to replace the whole thing? SBO has them in the chandlery for a very reasonable price...

    Thanks Jim. I was hoping just to find a drop in replacement but i guess it won't be that simple. I may just get two of those low profile passive vents, but i do like the look of the cowl vents.

    By the way, I would love to see pictures of how the crash bars are set up on the 37C...

    Thanks for posting the picture Johnb. So it is one bar, there's not a cross bar(s) for additional support? I can't tell from the picture.

    Thank you - that helps. What are the two little white things on the crash bar in the center? Is that to keep the boom from sliding if you rest it on the bars?

    Yes it is. However most of the time when we are on board I raise the boom up because if it is tied down you could not escape through the Vee berth hatch. They are home made out of Starboard.

    Thanks - yeah that make sense. The boom is very much in the way of the hatch. I keep mine raised at the dock and as far over to one side as possible.
