'87 Catalina 22 Tennessee River, Chattanooga
Just looking at my State boating regulations and found out if my boat has an enclosed fuel locker, it has to be vented.

Looks like I have another project.

Any suggestions, pictures, to help get me started.

If you have an '86 or later "new style," the locker IS vented. The vent is the little hole where the fuel line feeds out under the locker door. Gasoline fumes are heavier than air and sink down, they go out that hole.

What year is the boat? Information like this, that is often missing from a users profile, make giving advice, or tips about the boat, difficult.

My father owned a 76 20' Wellcraft with a Chevy 305 inboard and an OMC 185 stern drive. He had a blower motor switch on the console we had to turn on each time before we started the ignition. He said the boat may go boom if we didn't, we never forgot that, even though once we forgot the drain plug and had to beach her after stopping our outward run and finding ourselves rapidly sinking....
