Purchased the 5" Marinco solar vent. I was planning on putting it on the main salon top hatch but it looks like it will be a tight fit with the hatch lever. Not sure if the lever will clear the fan. Has anyone installed the new style Marinco in this manner?

I installed a 5" solar fan from Amazon in the hatch. Great spot for it and it works great. Check your clearances but mine fit.

I didn't take the chance on the 5" and returned it. Bought the 4" Marinco. The 4" fit fine but seems to barely pull any air. Glad you were able to get the 5" to fit

Can you post a photo? I had one in the little hatch up by the mast, but left the hatch open while sailing one day and ripped the whole lid/vent off during a controlled jibe when the vang caught it and deposited in the Chesapeake bay

This wasn't directed at me, but here is a photo that I hope may help.

Thanks. The 310 has a similar forward hatch, but after re-reading the post I believe the OP is speaking of the small hatch forward of the cabin table. Mine worked great for a season, until I left it open while sailing.
