For your information two 24VDC computer fans will mount on the screen for the small ports, like the one from the cockpit. These fans will bring more air into the aft cabin than a larger hatch. If you do this, try to buy waterproof fans with ball bearings. They exist, but are hard to find

If you don't have mosquito screens for these ports, cut a piece of plywood or starboard to fit firmly in place. Cut holes for the fans. Connect to 24VDV...CHILL.

You can also mount TWO 24VDC fans on starboard mounted under the aft hatch to bring more air inside.
