In the first pic you can see the exposed exhaust vent, which is on the (upper) boat deck, and in close proximity to the steps leading to the fly bridge. Michelle & I did not consider it a high priority item until we knew that we were having family visitors aboard later this month – including our 3 young grandchildren. The thought of one of them losing balance & using it as a handhold was beginning to keep me up at night. It was time for a solution, even if only temporary.
Admittedly the end result (2nd pic) doesn’t look nearly as attractive as the original chromed stainless steel, but at least now I won’t be worrying about one of the little ones scorching themselves on it.
